Russia says North Korea ready for renewal of nuclear talks

MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Thursday North Korea was ready to resume stalled international talks on its nuclear programme. North Korea's ambassador to the United Nations told Reuters in Geneva last month that it was prepared to resume the six-party talks but must maintain its readiness in the face of joint U.S.-South Korean military exercises. Russia's Lavrov told a news conference on Thursday: "We got assurances from the high representative of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea that Pyongyang is ready for the restart of six-party talks, without pre-conditions." He said a special envoy of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un met Russian President Vladimir Putin this week to deliver a letter promising "cooperation in solving problems that are now lingering on the Korean peninsula". #facebook #India #Russia #Italy #North Korea #Argentina #Latin America #Mexico #opinion
