Indonesia encouraged reviving six- party talks to find a peaceful solution on Korean Peninsula, a minister said here on Monday.

Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa told the press that Indonesia has praised the stance of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) that is willing to carry out dialogue on the matter.

"Safe and peaceful situation in the area will contribute to development for the countries in the area," said Natalegawa.

The encouragement was made during bilateral talks between Natalegawa and his DPRK counterpart Pak Ui Chun who is scheduled in Indonesia for five days.

He said that Indonesia will not support other efforts except for the six-party talks among DPRK, Republic of Korea (ROK), China, the United States, Russia and Japan.

Natalegawa said that it is a necessity that the problem must be resolved peacefully. "Sooner is better. Uncertainty will create unfavorable situation for the region," he said.

He added that DPRK has sought for equality in the six party talks.

"It means that all parties must honor sovereignty of each country," he said.

According to Natalegawa, Indonesia is in a good position in promoting peaceful dialogue as the country has a good relationship with both DPRK and ROK.

Indonesia is a leg of Pak's visit to four ASEAN countries aside from Vietnam, Laos and Myanmar.
