Russian Foreign Ministry: South Korea wants to reserve the right to return to the Russian market

Moscow sees the importance of maintaining open channels of communication with Seoul, as it is confident that South Korean companies have a desire to retain their right to return to the Russian market. The corresponding statement was made by the director of the first Asian department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, Ivan Zhelohovtsev. RIA Novosti reports this.

The diplomat also drew attention to the fact that currently Russian-South Korean relations are “going through difficult times.” However, only a few years ago, states worked to develop cooperation “in the most constructive way,” he noted.

“Despite serious differences in approaches, we consider it important to maintain open channels of communication with South Korean partners, who have confirmed a similar understanding <…>. In contacts at various levels, the Republic of Korea demonstrates its desire not to sever established ties with the Russian Federation, but to reserve the opportunity to return to our promising market,” Zhelokhovtsev noted.

He also emphasized that the Russian authorities have a positive attitude towards Seoul’s similar approach to relations between the two states. At the same time, Moscow is going to draw conclusions solely on the basis of specific steps of foreign partners, which include the introduction of economic sanctions.

Thus, the Russian diplomat noted South Korea’s plans to introduce a third package of restrictions on the export of goods. It is predicted that it may be adopted in February of this year. In such conditions, the restoration of mutually beneficial cooperation between the two countries is directly related to Seoul, Zhelohovtsev summed up his words.

Previously Public News Service reportedthat North Korea will abolish the law on economic cooperation with South Korea. This decision was made by the Supreme National Assembly of the country during the plenary session, reports the North Korean Central Telegraph Agency.
