APEC leaders come for continued negotiations of six countries on North Korea

APEC leaders came out for the continuation of negotiations by six countries on North Korea.

We support the peaceful settlement of the situation on the Korean Peninsula and the continuation of the negotiations of the six countries on the Korean problem, said APEC chairman, prime minister of Thailand Taksin Chinnawat.

The APEC leaders discussed the situation around North Korea during the lunch, he pointed out.

We believe that the Korean problem can be solved peacefully by way of a dialogue and taking into account the concerns of all countries, including the need for guarantees of North Korea's security, Chinnawat said.

We hope that a tangible and consistent progress will be reached and a peaceful and non-nuclear status of the Korean Peninsula established, the APEC chairman stressed.

Earlier, the Japanese delegation proposed that a separate written statement on the North Korean problem be adopted, but a number of delegations, above all Russia and China, considered it untimely. As a result, the decision was reached that the chairman of the forum will make an oral statement on the issue.
