Nuclear envoys of South Korea and Russia will discuss the curtailing of the nuclear program of North Korea

During his three-day visit to Russia, Hwang Jong Kuk, the chief nuclear envoy of South Korea, will meet with the Russian envoy for North Korea, Igor Morgulov, to hold talks on ways to resume the six-party talks on winding down North Korea's nuclear program, IA Ruskor reports.

The parties plan to hold in-depth discussions on North Korea's nuclear issues and issues related to the Korean Peninsula. Hwang told reporters in Beijing not last week that South Korea, the United States and China are looking for "different ways" to resume nuclear talks with North Korea. North Korea has threatened to conduct a fourth nuclear test, raising tensions on the Korean Peninsula. Pyongyang continued its provocations by firing two artillery volleys into the West Sea last month.

After a third nuclear test last year, North Korea has repeatedly expressed its desire to return to the six-party talks "without preconditions." But China, North Korea's longtime ally, has called on Seoul and Washington to lower their negotiating requirements.
