Comment by the Information and Press Department on the outcome of a high-level inter-Korean meeting

Tuesday, 16 January 2018 10:59

We welcome the agreements reached at a high-level meeting between North Korea and South Korea held on January 9 in Panmunjom, including regarding the participation of North Korean athletes in the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.

We hope that the implementation of these agreements will help defuse tensions on the Korean Peninsula and strengthen stability in this subregion.

We hope that all the parties concerned will support the efforts taken by the two Korean states to resume dialogue. We are convinced that dialogue is the only way towards finding a mutually acceptable solution to problems on the peninsula in a peaceful, political and diplomatic manner, just as Russia has always proposed.

This is the goal of the joint Russian-Chinese roadmap on a comprehensive settlement for the Korean Peninsula, which provides for the mutual renunciation of dangerous military activities by the United States and North Korea in the interests of creating a suitable atmosphere for launching talks that are ultimately aimed at creating a collective peace and security system in Northeast Asia. We urge all the countries concerned to join the efforts to implement this roadmap.

We hope for the further development of the nascent positive trend in the inter-Korean dialogue. For our part, we are ready to continue to provide all-round assistance to this process.
