North Korea wants six-party talks on the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula to continue, Deputy Russian Foreign Minister Alexander Alexeyev said Sunday following talks with his North Korean counterpart.
“The North Korean side several times returned to the point that the six-sided process should continue, that it is not rejecting six-sided negotiations, and that the aim of the full denuclearization of the Korean peninsula remains,” Interfax news agency quoted Alexeyev as saying.
Alexeyev made the comments in Beijing en route to Seoul from Pyongyang, where he held talks with his North Korean counterpart Kim Ky-kwan.
“My North Koreans colleagues several times mentioned that Pyongyang would not under any circumstances pass on its nuclear capabilities to another country, or use it against anyone,” Alexeyev said.
Quoting Alexeyev, RIA Novosti news agency said: “They said that only after analysing the UN resolution would they plan the subsequent character of their actions and set the outlines of the steps and measures that will be taken, including in relation to the resumption of the six-sided process in the near future.
