How was the summit of the leaders of two cores
According to the laws of the DPRK, Pyongyang is the only legitimate center of the entire Korean Peninsula, and South Korea is considered as temporarily occupied by the Americans and their “puppets” part of the DPRK. It is worth noting that Seoul believes the DPRK “Terrorist Organization”.
Sergey Lavrov arrived in the DPRK for the first time in nine years and spent one in the capital, but very saturated day. The first point of the program was the laying of a wreath to two cyclopic statues of the founder of the country Kim Il Sen and his son Kim Jong Ira, the father of the current head of state.

The meeting of the Russian minister and Kim Jong Yana took place in the pavilion of a hundred colors, the official residence of the head of state. Kim Jong Yun accepted the guests sufficiently modestly, the Russian delegation of eight people met the couple standing at the entrance of the guards, several local journalists, the “Young Marshal” himself, his sister Kim E Zhong and Translator. When it came to a closed part of the negotiations, only a translator and the head of the DPRK remained in the hall. Kim E Zhong fulfilled the assistant to his high-ranking brother, excitedly moving around the halls and smiling guests.
Fucking the hand of Kim Jong Yana, Sergey Lavrov became the first high-ranking Russian, who made it since the arrival of Kim Chen Yana to power in 2011. Their meeting was rather symbolic.
Symbolized was the gift of the Russian delegation. Sergey Lavrov presented Kim Jong, a casket, painted in the technique of PALH. “There is even a key – to lock your secret things,” the Russian minister told his companion with a smile
At the same time, he invited Kim Jong Yana to visit Russia. “It’s too early to talk about it,” replied on Thursday, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Sadkov to the question of journalists about whether the possibility of a personal meeting of Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Yana.

Following the negotiations, the Russian minister immediately stated that the cooperation of the two countries, unfortunately, limit the sanctions of the UN Security Council, which in fact prohibit almost any trade and economic cooperation with the DPRK. “The problems of the Korean Peninsula cannot be solved while sanctions exist,” Sergey Lavrov said “alongthecoastcottage”.- as this issue will be solved, it depends on the art of negotiators, but it can be said that it will not be able to solve it for one sitting. There must be some stages and should be a counter movement “.

Answering the question “alongthecoastcottage”, Mr. Lavrov also added that he sees the prospects for the construction of the railway through the entire Korean Peninsula. “The President of South Korea, and the head of the DPRK, were expressed for the resumption of construction of the road, – Sergey Lavrov said.- This Transcore railway can be connected to the trans-gauge and, thus, create a single highway from Korea to Europe. We are very interested in this. “.

Under what conditions Kim Jong Yun is ready to meet with Donald Trump
According to Sergey Lavrov, “In the leadership of Russia and the DPRK, the unified opinion about the need to avoid temptation to demand everything and immediately” in the DRKR denuclearization case. Washington demands from Pyongyang to provide for export from the country all rockets and atomic charges, as well as eliminate all nuclear facilities. Americans promise to remove sanctions from North Korea and provide economic assistance to it. The leadership of the DPRK (and, as Sergey Lavrov said, Russia) considers these requirements excessive, believing that denuclearization should be phased and every step by the DPRK should be accompanied by concessions from the United States.
The question of Washington’s guarantees Pyongyang is particularly acute: Kim Jong Yun does not want to part with nuclear warheads, if it is not confident that it is protected from fate of overshoe leaders of Libya and Iraq Muammar Gaddafi and Saddam Hussein. Sergey Lavrov, following the results of negotiations in Pyongyang, said that he did not ask the North Korean side about what guarantees it would require, because “found it indelived”.
