    BEIJING, FEBRUARY 24 (RIA NOVOSTI SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT) - Russia understands bilateral problems facing Japan and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), said Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Losyukov on Tuesday, summing up the results of the exchange of opinions with Mitoji Yabunaka, the head of the Japanese delegation at the six-sided negotiations on the nuclear problems on the Korean peninsula.

    The point at issue is Japanese citizens kidnapped by DPRK agents in 1970s-1980s.

    "This problem, which can be solved in conditions of good relations between the two countries, could help create favorable conditions for the solution of the nuclear problem on the Korean Peninsula," the Russian diplomat stressed and added that this problem should be solved on a bilateral basis.

    Losyukov will meet today with heads of the US, DPRK and South Korean delegations.

    The six-sided negotiations on resolving the crisis around the DPRK nuclear problem will begin in Beijing on February 25 and will last for three days.
