DPRK to continue cooperation for "unconditional resumption" of Six-Party Talks 
UNITED NATIONS, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) -- The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on Tuesday vowed to continue its cooperation with all the parties concerned for "unconditional resumption of the Six-Party Talks."

The statement came as Pak Kil Yon, vice foreign minister of DPRK, was speaking at the general debate of the UN General Assembly.

"The DPRK will in the future, too, make strenuous efforts to establish a durable and lasting peace mechanism on the Korean peninsula and will continue to cooperate with all the parties concerned for unconditional resumption of the Six-Party Talks."

The Six-Party Talks, involving China, DPRK, the United States, the Republic Of Korea, Russia and Japan, began in 2003. Six rounds of such talks were held before stalling in Dec. 2008.

"The DPRK joined the UN proceeding from its desire to defend world peace and achieve common prosperity of the mankind together with all UN members and has since remained faithful to the purposes and principles of the UN Charters as it had pledged," he said.

"However, in the present international relations the logic of power and high-handed politics become all the more undisguised negating the principle of sovereign equality against the efforts and desires of the UN member states," he said.

Meanwhile, the vice foreign minister also voiced his support for the Palestinian statehood bid at the United Nations.

"The DPRK which recognized Palestine state in 1998 supports its UN admission and expresses its conviction that the aspirations of the Palestine people will be translated into a reality," he said.
