MOSCOW, July 24 (Itar-Tass) - The normalisation of the situation on the Korean Peninsula may be helped by a peace conference, according to experts who participated in a roundtable titled “Korean War: 60 Years of Unsettled Conflict. A Look into Present Day”, which was held in Moscow on Wednesday, July 24.
“There is no way the problem can be solved in one move. Many problems stem from the fact that the war is not over and there is no peace, and a peace conference needs to be convened,” Alexander Panov, who was Russia’s Ambassador to the Republic of Korea in 1992-1994, said.
His colleague Valery Sukhinin, who served as ambassador in Pyongyang in 2006-2012, said the conflict has been dragging on for 60 years. “North Korea says no to truce and yes to a peace treaty,” he said.
Experts believe that normalisation of relations between Pyongyang and Seoul and stabilisation in the region as a whole can be achieved within the framework of six-party talks, not bilateral consultations.
“Bilateral agreements can be made too, but the six-party format is optimal,” Sukhinin said.
