Russia calls for easing of Korea tensions

A senior Russian diplomat said reduction of political and military tensions would help bring the 6-party nuclear talks back on track.

Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov called for reduced political and military tensions on the Korean peninsula in order to put the stalled six-way nuclear talks with North Korea back on track, Sputnik News reported.

Morgulov had a phone conversation with US Special Representative for North Korea Policy, Sung Kim, who called to discuss a way out of the North Korea nuclear stalemate, according to the report.

“On the Russian side, there was strong conviction that a restart of the six-way process and a diplomatic solution of the Korean nuclear problem can only be initiated in the framework of a military and political detente on the Korean peninsula and around it,” the Russian Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
