There are still differences in the stances of Russia and North Korea on the settlement on the Korean Peninsula, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov said.

"There are still a number of significant aspects, on which the stances [of Russia and North Korea] differ for now. We will continue active and consistent work with all the partners for the six-party talks in order to find mutually acceptable outcomes" Morgulov told reporters on Friday.

Morgulov said regarding consultations with North Korean First Deputy Foreign Minister Kim Kye Gwan held in Moscow on July 4 that the consultations were intensive, meaningful and business-like.

"The sides have confirmed that they are both minded to search for a political and diplomatic solution to the problems on the Korean Peninsula and have discussed various modes of re-launching the six-party talks on the nuclear problem. We generally give positive evaluation to the exchange of opinions held," the diplomat said.
