MOSCOW, September 30 (Itar-Tass) —— Russia and North Korea discussed the ways to resume the six-party negotiations over the nuclear problem on the Korean Peninsula, a diplomatic source in the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Friday after the negotiations between Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Andrei Denisov, North Korean First Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kae-gwan, Deputy Chairman of the North Korean Supreme People’s Assembly presidium (parliament) Yang Hyong-sop and North Korean Deputy Foreign Minister Kung Sok-ung in Pyongyang on September 28-30.
“To develop the agreements, which were reached at the Russian-North Korean summit in Ulan-Ude on August 24, 2011, at the negotiations, which passed in a traditionally businesslike and cordial atmosphere, the top officials of the countries discussed the most important aspects of bilateral cooperation in politics, humanitarian contacts and economy, including the prospects to implement tripartite projects on the Korean Peninsula – to build a gas pipeline from Russia to South Korea through North Korea, build an electric power line along the same route and to connect the railway networks of Russia, North Korea and South Korea,” the Russian diplomatic source said.
“The negotiators also exchanged views on the development of the situation in Northeast Asia and the ways to resume six-party talks over the nuclear problem on the Korean Peninsula,” the source said.
