MOSCOW, September 21. /TASS/. The participants of six-party talks on the nuclear problem on the Korean peninsula (Russia, United States, China, South Korea, North Korea and Japan) should focus on creating a new system of collective security in the region, 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.

"Of course, the six-party talks are not the best format. Attempts to cut off this or that country will sooner or later backfire," Toloraya said. "It is tactically wrong to directly pose a question about the main thing at talks being the denuclearization of North Korea. It is written in the North Korean Constitution that the state possesses nuclear weapons."

The expert called for adjusting this format. "It is important to focus on creating a new system of collective security in the region," Toloraya noted.

He stressed that the six-party talks are a platform where the sides "can see each other’s positions." "That is why efforts should not be spared for resuming negotiations, but it is important to change the agenda," the expert added.
