UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY) – In the view of the Russian president, the United States will have to give security guarantees to North Korea, if they really want to reach an agreement for the denuclearization of the Korean peninsula.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has from the beginning advocated dialogue to resolve disputes between Washington and Pyongyang.
In an interview broadcast on Wednesday, June 6, on Chinese television, Vladimir Putin said that “we are all waiting for a positive outcome,” referring to the planned meeting between US President Donald Trump and the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-un.
Having noted the experience of the war in Iraq and especially in Libya, under the pretext of denuclearization, it would be normal, according to President Putin, that North Korea calls for absolute security guarantees.
Putin also deplored the fact that the United States and South Korea have not yet abandoned their joint military exercises.
Putin did not fail to recall that the Russian proposal for the development of the railway and gas pipeline projects in partnership with the two Koreas would contribute to the stability of the region.
President Putin also said he invited North Korean President Kim Jong-Un to visit Russia next September.
