JOINT STATEMENT ON KOREAN NUCLEAR NON-PROLIFERATION

(Text: U.S.-Russian joint statement)

(200) (Following is the text of the U.S.-Russian Joint Statement on Korean Nuclear Non-proliferation issued June 17 by the White House.)

Russia and the United States, supporting the efforts by the international community to counter the proliferation of nuclear weapons, note the positive changes in strengthening the nuclear non-proliferation regime in Korea. They applaud the North-South Joint Declaration on the Denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula of December 31, 1991, and call for the full implementation of this agreement, which will make an essential contribution to strengthening regional peace and security and to reconciliation and stability on the Korean Peninsula.

The sides welcome DPRK ratification of the safeguards agreement with the IAEA and encourage further cooperation with the agency in placing its nuclear facilities under appropriate safeguards. Full compliance by the DPRK with its obligations under the NPT and the Joint Declaration, including IAEA safeguards as well as credible and effective bilateral nuclear inspections, will make possible the full resolution of international concerns over the nuclear problem on the Korean Peninsula.
