MOSCOW, May 12. /TASS/. Moscow is urging all parties to the dispute in the Korean peninsula to create a climate for its political and diplomatic solution and to get back to the dialogue, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told a news briefing on Thursday.
"As for the situation in the Korean peninsula is concerned, our position is well-known. Our main actions are geared to attempts at bringing the parties concerned back to discussion and to a political and diplomatic solution of the outstanding problems in the peninsula," she said.
"On the other hand, we [Russia] move on in line with the UN Security Council’s humanitarian decisions regarding North Korea," Zakharova said. "We are urging all participants and all those who in this or that way are involved in this situation to avoid fanning tensions in the region and to try to encourage and create a situation for a political and diplomatic settlement. This is our global approach."
