    MOSCOW, FEBRUARY 3 (RIA NOVOSTI) - Russia welcomes the decision to hold the second round of six-sided negotiations on North Korea, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Losyukov told RIA Novosti.

    "This is undoubtedly a positive development of events. We are ready to take part in such negotiations at any time," said the high-ranking Russian diplomat.

    The Chinese foreign ministry officially declared on Tuesday that the new round of negotiations on the North Korean nuclear program will take place on February 25 in Beijing. The official Central Telegraph Agency of North Korea confirmed this date.

    The first round of negotiations with the participation of both Koreas as well as the United States, Russia, China and Japan was held in the Chinese capital last August.

    The participants in the negotiations are trying to find conditions of freezing the program that would suit the DPRK. The United States fear that this program may be used for the production of nuclear weapons.
