Russia’s deputy foreign minister suggests North Korea is ready to freeze its nuclear program in exchange for diplomatic concessions from the U.S.
Deputy Minister Igor Morgulov met with his South Korean counterpart in Seoul Monday.
He cited North Korea’s restraint from nuclear activities in the past two months as a signal it’s willing to freeze its nuclear actions.
The two leaders also discussed a proposed free-trade zone between a Russia-led trade bloc and South Korea.
This comes after comments from President Trump earlier this month, saying China supports the U.S.’s position that North Korea must unconditionally abandon its nuclear program.
