Russia welcomes the plans of the US and North Korea to hold the second summit and continue dialogue, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov told reporters on Friday after talks with his US colleagues in Washington.

“The conversation was constructive, we discussed in details the latest developments,” Morgulov said. “Russia welcomes dialogue between the US and North Korea at the working level, as well as information about the second summit,” he added.

“At the same time, we drew the attention of our US colleagues to the fact that efforts in the bilateral format are important, but problems on the Korean Peninsula are multifaceted, and they concern many parties,” the diplomat noted. “We also drew their attention to the importance of expanding UN’s role in the work on the Korean Peninsula,” Morgulov noted.
