North Korea has offered Russia exclusive rights to its natural uranium deposits in exchange for support at the stalled talks on Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions, a news report said Sunday. The two countries have been in talks since 2002 over a deal for Russia to import uranium, which it planned to enrich and sell as nuclear fuel to China and Vietnam, according to a report in the regional daily, Tokyo Shimbun. North Korea recently offered Russia exclusive rights to the uranium in exchange for open support at the six-party talks, which have been stalled since last year, the report said, citing unnamed Russian officials.
