May 23 2005

Chief of Staff of Russian Armed Forces Yuri Baluyevsky said today after talks with Japanese counterpart, Hajime Massac, we need to do their utmost to prevent the test of the DPRK nuclear weapons. Japan is also adamantly opposed to nuclear testing.

Meanwhile, as reported earlier, North Korea intends to produce an underground nuclear explosion : Earlier this month North Korean government announced the successful extraction of the reactor fuel rods.

"We simply must not allow the holding of such tests to prevent the emergence of nuclear weapons on the Korean peninsula ", - said Baluyevsky, suggested resuming talks with Russia on Pyongyang's nuclear program.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in turn soybeans, in an interview with Japanese news agency Kyodo News said that the decision of the North Korean problem should be achieved through negotiations and not spur an arms race , especially nuclear weapons.

China, which plays a significant role in resolving the conflict, meanwhile, said that the tough U.S. stance on solving the problem only makes more difficult and hinders the negotiation process.

Also, a senior South Korean government said today that most likely response to recent statements by North Korea in Washington will be a turning point in the controversy over Pyongyang's nuclear program.
