Moscow is encouraging for North and South Korea to open peaceful talks despite acknowledging that chances are slim, Russia’s Federation Council (upper house) Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said on Friday

“We will try, it is difficult to forecast the probability degree, but frankly speaking, the chances are not high,” Matviyenko said. 

“In any case, we will make every effort to create conditions for this meeting,” she said. “Well, if no success, the mere fact of our talks with them is already important.”

“We will try to make an agreement, persuade them and explain the importance of dialogue and try to sit down at the negotiating table and attempt to start searching for compromise,” she stressed.

“If we ask the citizens of South or North Korea whether they want war, the answer will be the same: they are afraid of war and they don’t want any war,” she continued.

She also explained that no state should remain isolated, after the arrival of a North Korean delegation in St. Petersburg.

“This is also the result of our efforts, the Foreign Ministry and our parliamentary efforts,” she pointed out. “We believe no one should be isolated, everyone should have a chance to participate and voice their opinion.”
