Russia: No Easy, Quick Solutions at Six-Party Talks
Adjust font size:

Russia does not expect easy and quick solutions to be found at the six-party negotiations on the Korean Peninsula nuclear problem because of a number of serious disagreements between certain partners, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Losyukov said on Friday. 

"Bearing in mind serious disagreements about key problems between certain partners, we do not expect easy and quick solutions," Losyukov was quoted by the Itar-Tass news agency as saying.

The nuclear problem of the Korean Peninsula "is comprehensive. It has many aspects and deep historical roots," the diplomat said.

"We are targeted for serious and thorough work, which will naturally require self-control, patience, flexibility and readiness for mutual concessions from us and other parties," he said.

"Firstly, it is necessary to carry on the six-party talks and ensure a smooth and sustainable development of the Beijing process without lengthy pauses that have happened before," Losyukov said.

"This is the only way to the final goal of complete denuclearization of Korea," he added.

North Korea assumed "clear-cut political commitments in the joint statement, while Russia and other partners declared the readiness to give energy assistance to North Korea," he said.

The latest session of the six-party talks was held last December in Beijing. The parties concerned failed to make major progress but agreed to have another session as soon as possible.
