MOSCOW, Oct. 23 (UPI) -- Russian and South Korean leaders at the six-party talks on North Korea's nuclear disarmament met Thursday in Moscow to coordinate negotiations.

South Korean Special representative Kim Sook told his Russian counterpart Alexi Borodavkin that it was of key importance that all sides fulfilled their commitments, RIA Novosti reported.

Under a February 2007 deal between the six parties -- Russia, South and North Korea, the United States, China and Japan -- the North pledged to dismantle its plutonium-producing Yongbyon reactor.

Last week the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency, said the North had resumed work to deconstruct the reactor after a pause of several months, RIA Novostl reported.
