Russia is satisfied with the draft joint document submitted by China on Saturday, host and chair of the ongoing six-party talks on nuclear issues, said top Russian envoy Alexander Losyukov on Sunday, noting "It is a good one."
Losyukov said some delegations still have some differences on the timing of follow-up actions to be taken. "If these differences could be solved, a joint document was likely to be passed. If not so, the parties had to revise the draft or to issue a chairmen statement," he said.
Without elaborating on details of the draft document, the Russian envoy said he is doubtful about the completion of the disablement of North Korea's nuclear facilities by the end of this year, saying such disablement was very complicated technical work.
The current session of the six-party talks was scheduled to run from September 27 to 30. The talks attended by China, the US, North and South Korea, Russia and Japan, were first initiated in August 2003.
