Russia to cooperate with DPRK for substantial result in six-party talks

Russia will cooperate with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea(DPRK)in a bid to make substantial result in the new round of the six-party talks, said Russian chief negotiator Alexander Alexeyev Tuesday upon arrival in Beijing.

Undoubtedly, the fifth-round of the six-party talks will not be easy, said Alexeyev recently, calling on other parties to take the DPRK's concerns into consideration.

It is reported that the Russian delegation to this round of the six-party talks consists 13 members, including Russian ambassadors to China and the DPRK.

Four rounds of the six-party talks have so far been held in Beijing, aiming at resolving the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula, which involve China, the DPRK, the United States, the Republic of Korea, Russia and Japan.

A joint statement, the first of its kind, was issued at the second-phase meeting of the fourth-round of the six-party talks held in Beijing in September.
