As reported by the RIA Novosti, the Presidents of Russia and USA Dmitry Medvedev and Barack Obama have discussed the resolution of "nuclear issue" of Iran and North Korea in Seoul.
Washington has no "hostile intentions" toward North Korea. The U.S. calls for the resolution of the situation around Iran's nuclear program by diplomatic means.
In his speech, according to the edition, Obama stressed that the U.S. was not hostile to the DPRK authorities, and even intended to take steps to improve relations between Washington and Pyongyang, if North Korea abandons its nuclear weapons. "I want to appeal directly to the leaders in Pyongyang. The U.S. does not have hostile intentions towards your country. We want peace", Mr. Obama said.
In addition, the U.S. President stated that the Iranian nuclear program must be resolved by diplomatic means. However, the leadership of the Islamic Republic also must make "urgent steps" in this direction, Barack Obama said.
At the same time, after the talks with the U.S. leader Barack Obama in Seoul, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev said that in his opinion, the last three years were the best in a decade in regard of the relations between Washington and Moscow, despite different estimates of so-called "restart", the RBC reported.
Russian leader has also noted that Russia and the U.S. remained on their positions on missile defense. However, Medvedev emphasized that they still had time to agree on these matters.
