MOSCOW - North Korean leader Kim Jong-il repeated his readiness to return to stalled nuclear talks "without any preconditions" in an interview with the Russian state news agency Itar-Tass published on Wednesday.

The comments came amid a flurry of intensified diplomacy by Russia, China and the United States on trying to end North Korea's nuclear program after talks collapsed in late 2008.

The United States and North Korea plan to meet on Monday and Tuesday in Geneva, a source familiar with the matter said, for discussions likely to focus on whether nuclear talks might resume.
