Russia has not had contacts with North Korea in the nuclear energy sphere for more than 10 years
Russia has not had contacts with North Korea in the nuclear energy sphere for more than 10 years, the head of the Federal Agency for Nuclear Power said Thursday. "Pyongyang has not contacted Russia [on the issue]," Alexander Rumyantsev told a news conference in the U.S. capital. "And even if it does, it will have to rejoin the Non-Proliferation Treaty to prove that it strictly observes all regulations." "We have not had any contacts with North Korea [in the sphere of nuclear energy] for more than a decade," the official added. Russia is party to six-nation negotiations, also involving North and South Korea, the United States, China, and Japan, which began in August 2003 and aim to persuade North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons development in return for economic and diplomatic rewards. The fourth round of talks, held in September this year, ended with Pyongyang agreeing to dismantle its nuclear weapons program and abide by International Atomic Energy Agency safeguards in exchange for economic aid. One day after the deal was struck, however, the North Korean leadership said they would begin disarmament only if the U.S. provided a light-water reactor for civilian use.
