MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. The resolution of the issue with denuclearization of the Korean peninsula is impossible without taking into account interests of leading countries, director of the Center of Russian Strategy in Asia at the Institute of Economy at the Russian Academy of Sciences Georgy Toloraya said on Monday.
"The issue is due not only in the lack of regulation in the inter-Korean relations, but also in the lack of regulation in North Korea’s relation with the rest of the world, with the West in general," Toloraya said. "Moreover, the United States think about the Korean situation in the context of relations with Beijing."
In this connection, the expert stressed that the resolution of the issue is impossible without taking into account the interests of leading countries. "However, this does not mean that Pyongyang and Seoul should not establish dialogue, everyone would win from this," Toloraya stressed. "Some concessions by South Korea would have received a good reaction from North Korea." It is important to implement the concept of trust and security in the region, and there are currently "certain possibilities" to do this, he added.
According to the member of the Russian Council on International Affairs Gleb Ivashentsov, West’s persistent attacks on Pyongyang have predetermined the region’s nuclear problem.
"The [nuclear] program emerged after the Cold War, when the West started advancing from the position of force, policy of ultimatums toward unfavorable regimes," Ivashentsov said. "The root of the problem lies in the lack of regulation in the inter-Korean relations," he noted.
