    BEIJING, February 26 (RIA Novosti) - China, Russia and South Korea offer the DPRK energy assistance in exchange for nuclear programs' freezing, Russian deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Losyukov told journalists.

    Mr. Losyukov heads the Russian delegation at the six-sided talks in Beijing on settling the crisis around North Korea's nuclear programs.

    The Russian diplomat said the U.S. and Japan do not intend yet to participate in rendering assistance to Pyongyang.

    In the beginning of the negotiations, the DPRK suggested freezing its nuclear program if other interested countries meet it halfway to resolve the nuclear problem. In Mr. Losyukov's words, the talk is first of all about energy assistance to Pyongyang.
