South Korea's chief nuclear envoy is in Moscow for talks with his Russian counterpart on the conditions for restarting the long-stalled six-party talks on North Korea's denuclearization.
Before leaving Seoul late Monday, Hwang Joon-kook said Russia's stance is similar to China's in that it supports the swift resumption of the nuclear talks.
The two envoys are set to meet on Wednesday.
The multilateral dialogue aimed at ending North Korea's nuclear program, involving the two Koreas, the United States, China, Russia and Japan, has been at a standstill for more than five years.
Hwang's first trip to Russia since taking office in April, follows talks with his U.S. and Chinese counterparts earlier this month.
