MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - Talks in Moscow with the first deputy foreign minister of North Korea is not the last contact, there will be more contacts, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Alexander Lukashevich said on Friday.
“The talks with DPRK’s First Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan proceeded very substantively and constructively,” he said. “We expect very much that consultations will make it possible for us to speak shortly about a concrete time frame for the resumption of six-party talks,” he said.
However, “this will depend on the position of Pyongyang and on international community demands to it in accordance with familiar resolutions of the UN Security Council, the diplomat stressed.
“In this case it is very difficult to predict (time frames of the talks),” he continued.
“At this stage I would not undertake to speak about concrete dates, but everybody proceeds from the fact that the sooner such talks resume, the more chances there will be to achieve stability and reduce the level of tension on the Korean peninsula,” the diplomat stressed.
“All our further steps and moves by our partners in six-party talks will be aimed at that,” Lukashevich said.
