Moscow is interested in promoting confidence-building measures on the Korean Peninsula and the phased reunification of the Korean nation, State Duma Speaker Sergei Naryshkin said in Seoul.
“Russia adheres to (the principle of) peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula and (promoting) confidence building measures, with the eventual shift towards reunification of the Korean nation,” Naryshkin said at a roundtable dedicated to historical and cultural dimensions of Russian-Korean relations on Tuesday.
A Russian parliamentary delegation led by the State Duma speaker is paying an official visit to the Republic of Korea.
Russia is maintaining a measured viewpoint on Korean reunification, Naryshkin said. “We stand for a political and diplomatic solution to the Korean problem,” the speaker said.
