10:04 am
a concern for russia once again president medvedev reiterated that moscow is alarmed over north korea's nuclear ambitions but believes the only way to go about solving them is through negotiations and. that requires our special attention is the situation in the pacific region and on the korean peninsula we have discussed the issue did nuclearization have highlighted the importance of six party talks we want them to resume as soon as possible in the asia pacific region the wrist serious potential for conflict and there is no alternative who want to set up a dialogue and improve understanding between the sides. and we ourselves had a chance to go to the border with north korea it's only some sixty kilometers from the center of seoul of course with these twenty most powerful leaders in the region over the next couple of days this is a lot something we're going to hear a lot about at the g. twenty president mentioned that he is very impressed with the way south korea has developed they've had a huge amount of success with innovation and rapprochement or modernization and

10:06 am
a lot of talk about russian vodka and president medvedev pointed out that this is a great chance and a great reason to build the cooperation between the two countries on the lowest levels at a civil level so people in korea understand that it's not just that russian string . and he's now reporting there now the world's top economies take center stage tomorrow in south korea when the g twenty summit kicks off russian presidential aide or qaida or car which tells r.t. that the group's approach has been to focus on short term problems in the past but will gradually shift to dealing with long term issues. that if approach is quite natural in the early days for east just a few months ago or more on the global economy and was killed by the crisis the response immediately response was the main concern for pl so for him to go in for a collective decision we can go. g twenty will be ready to move to a long term agenda and it's happening. but it will take time it's still developing
