Russia points out the initiative on non-proliferation security
"We view the recent events concerned with the statement by North Korea on its withdrawal from the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) as contradicting international efforts in this sphere," Russia's Defense Minister Sergei Ivanov said in his speech at the Council on Foreign Relations here. "We must do everything possible to return that state into the framework of the treaty," he said. This calls for searching for compromises, above all within the ongoing six-party talks on the North Korean nuclear problem. "North Korea has a common border with Russia, and so the use of pressure is unacceptable for us, as this can provoke a regional conflict," the minister said. Strict compliance by all countries with the provisions of international conventions on the prohibition of chemical and biological weapons, Mr. Ivanov said. "Russia has joined the core of the initiative on non-proliferation security because it is vital for it to rule out the illegal delivery of WMDs and their components from outside the country," Sergei Ivanov said.
