A Russian nuclear envoy who visited North Korea said Saturday he pressed the North to return to six-nation nuclear disarmament talks but didn't say how it responded. "We discussed the situation after (the North's claimed nuclear test on) October the ninth, and the main point was how, as soon as possible, to come back to the six-party process, to resolve the six-party process, which would be the denuclearization of (the) Korean Peninsula," Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Alexeyev told reporters at the Beijing airport after arriving from Pyongyang, North Korea's capital.
