South Korean President Roh Moo-hyun urged North Korea on Tuesday to return to stalled talks on its nuclear weapons program and said Seoul was ready to provide assistance to the communist nation to achieve a nuclear-free Korean Peninsula.

Roh also pledged that Seoul "will spare no efforts and assistance to ensure that North Korea abandons its nuclear (weapons program)."
