MOSCOW, April 2 (Itar-Tass) – Russia believes that some chances to resume the six-party negotiations over the settlement of the North Korean nuclear problem still exist, Ambassador-at-Large of the Russian Foreign Ministry Grigory Logvinov, who heads the Russian delegation at the six-party talks, said on Tuesday.
“Until there is a chance to resume the six-party talks, it should be used. We believe that such a chance exists,” the diplomat underlined.
The latest six-party negotiations over the settlement of the North Korean nuclear problem involving Russia, the United States, Japan, China and both Koreas was held in December 2008. Since then the contacts were not resumed in this format.
Russia is holding intensive talks with its partners in the six-party North Korean nuclear talks in order to settle the situation in political and diplomatic ways, Logvinov told Itar-Tass before.
