SOSNOVY BOR, Russia - North Korean leader Kim Jong-il said his country was willing to discuss suspending nuclear weapons testing and production if six-nation talks on its nuclear program are revived, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev's spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

"Kim Jong-il expressed readiness to return to six-party talks without preconditions. In the course of the talks the North Koreans will be ready to resolve the issue of imposing a moratorium on testing and production of missile and nuclear weaponry," Natalya Timakova said after talks between Kim and Medvedev.

Kim's pledge, if confirmed by Pyongyang, could help revive the six-party aid-for-disarmament talks which collapsed in 2008.
