Lavrov also condemned the November 23 attack on a South Korean island that killed four people and triggered a regional crisis.
The Russian Foreign Ministry said in statement that Lavrov "expressed deep concern" to visiting North Korean Foreign Minister Pak Ui-chun over "information about the creation...of industrial uranium enrichment capabilities."
Lavrov urged Pyongyang to abandon its nuclear programme.
