Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov is looking forward to discussing the current situation on the Korean peninsula with North Korean counterpart Choe Son Hui.
“Regarding the international agenda, we would like to continue our trust-based dialogue on the situation on the Korean peninsula, in Northeast Asia in general,” the top diplomat said in his opening remarks at talks in Moscow with his North Korean counterpart.
Russia has laid out to the United Nations Security Council its proposals for how to settle the situation on the Korean Peninsula, Lavrov said.
“We have always been in favor of getting the negotiation process going without any preconditions in order to seek to achieve lasting peace and stability in Northeast Asia,” the foreign minister said. “Russia independently and together with China has submitted relevant proposals to the UN Security Council. They are on the negotiating table,” he added.
