Korean Treaty Talks

MOSCOW -- South Korean Foreign Minister Gong Ro-myung arrived Sunday in Moscow for talks expected to focus mainly on resolving the tense situation on the Korean Peninsula.

Gong and his Russian counterpart, Yevgeny Primakov, are expected to discuss Russia's possible role in a settlement between North and South Korea, Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Panov told Itar-Tass.

The United States and South Korea jointly proposed last week that they, along with North Korea and China, start talks aimed at replacing the armistice that ended the 1950-53 Korean War with a permanent peace treaty.
