MOSCOW, Feb. 10 (Xinhuanet) -- The Russian Foreign Ministry Thursday said the security problem of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK)
should be resolved through negotiations rather than a nuclear arms race, the Interfax news agency reported.
In connection with the DPRK's decision to suspend participationin the six-nation negotiations on the nuclear problem, Russian Foreign Ministry
spokesman Alexander Yakovenko said that Russia respects and gives attention to the DPRK's security concerns, but thinks that "the problem should be
resolved through negotiations rather than arms race, especially nuclear arms race".
Accusing the United States of seeking to topple its political system and threatening it with a nuclear stick, the DPRK on Thursday stated it
decided to suspend its participation in the six-party talks on the nuclear issue for an "indefinite period".
Yakovenko said Moscow regrets the decision made by the DPRK andthinks this attitude contradicts Pyongyang's declared intention tostrive for
de-nuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. China View Paper
