A top Russian diplomat praised the UN Security Council resolution on North Korea and said Pyongyang did not intend to abandon the six-nation talks on its nuclear program, Russian news agencies reported Sunday. "In my opinion, the resolution properly reflects the international community's reaction to what has happened," Deputy Foreign Minister Alexander Alexeyev was quoted by Interfax in Beijing, where he traveled after visiting North Korea.

RIA-Novosti cited Alexeyev as saying that he was "cautiously optimistic" about the resumption of six-nation talks, which include the United States, Russia, China, Japan as well as North and South Korea.
