RUSSKY ISLAND (Vladivostok), January 30 (Itar-Tass) – Delegates of the 21st session of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF), which ended in Vladivostok on Wednesday, passed 14 resolutions.
The documents concern, in particular, such problems of the region as food security, parliamentary diplomacy, energy efficiency, as well as the situation in the Middle East.
According to the chairman of the session’s editorial commission, Andrei Klimov, one of the resolutions concerns the situation on the Korean peninsula.
“Like no other country Russia is interested to see that the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea remains a non-nuclear territory,” said Klimov, who is deputy chairman of the international affairs committee at the Federation Council upper house of parliament.
“We are worried both about the nuclear program that has a military component and about experiments with rockets that can be of dual purpose,” he explained.
“This is a balanced document. Having taken it as a basis we quickly reached progress. There were attempts from some countries to ‘teach’ the DPRK how to live, but this is inadmissible as this violates the principle of non-interference. We have managed to achieve a balance,” he added.
According to the senator, the decision on that issue is based on a corresponding resolution of the UN Security Council. In particular, the resolution says North Korea must fully refuse to conduct nuclear tests and to use ballistic missile technologies.
APPF chair person, Russian Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko stressed at a news conference after the session that 14 documents and the final communiqu· were “the fruit of joint labor of all national delegations”. She stressed that compromises had been found on all issues, and “all documents were passed on a consensus basis”.
