MOSCOW, October 11 (Itar-Tass). — Russia supports the earliest resumption of the talks on the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told the 8th East Asia Summit (EAS) in Brunei.
“I share the opinion of the colleagues who have called today for the earliest creation of conditions for the resumption of the six-party talks on the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula,” the minister said. “We are convinced that it is necessary to return to the objectives specified in the joint statement of the six-party talks’ participants in October 2005. In our work with all the parties concerned, especially with North Korea, we have been persistently pursuing exactly this goal.”
“At the same time we hope that all the parties concerned will show restraint and will not use the current situation for building up military muscle in the region disproportionately,” Lavrov emphasized.
