NAGASAKI, November 3. /TASS/. Russia will continue to make efforts, in collaboration with its foreign partners, to find a diplomatic solution to the Korean Peninsula’s nuclear issue, speaker of Russia’s Federation Council (upper house of parliament), Valentina Matviyenko, told reporters in Nagasaki.
"Russia, together with its international partners, will push ahead with its efforts aimed at finding a peaceful diplomatic solution to this issue," she said.
"We believe it is necessary to continue to exert pressure on North Korea as part of international efforts in this regard to make sure it complies with the UN resolutions on the issue and abandons attempts to create and develop nuclear weapons in that country," Matviyenko noted.
According to Matviyenko, "this is a very serious hotbed of tension in the region and may have very unpredictable consequences."
She noted that during her visit to Tokyo and Nagasaki, Japanese colleagues voiced concern over North Korea’s nuclear issue.
"Russia’s stance coincides with the stance of Japan, the US and other countries. We are strongly opposed to the expansion of the club of the countries possessing nuclear weapons. We are opposed to the proliferation of nuclear weapons. We believe that the nuclear tests carried out by North Korea are inadmissible, our Foreign Ministry has repeatedly made statements on that score," the speaker said.
