Russia Conveys N. Korea's Desire for Direct Talks with US

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has reportedly conveyed to his U.S. counterpart North Korea's desire for direct talks with the U.S to seek security guarantees.
Russia's RIA news agency reported on Thursday that the Russian minister passed on the North's desire for talks during his meeting with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held on the sidelines of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe's Ministerial Council in Vienna, Austria.
After the meeting, Lavrov told reporters that North Korea wants to talk to the U.S. about guarantees for its security, adding Moscow is ready to take part in facilitating such negotiations.
Earlier on Tuesday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov had said at a forum in Germany that Pyongyang does not want security guarantees from Russia and China, but from the U.S., adding North Korea wants direct talks with Washington.
