Senior Russian diplomat hails US readiness to start talks with N.Korea

MOSCOW - Russia welcomes US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's statement that Washington is ready to begin direct talks with North Korea, the Interfax news agency cited Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov as saying on Wednesday.


Tillerson said direct talks with Pyongyang might start without pre-conditions, backing away from a key US demand that North Korea must first accept that giving up its nuclear arsenal would be part of any negotiations.
