US President George Bush has announced that Washington will carry on its dialogue with North Korea, and praised other countries', including Russia's, contribution to this process.
"It's very good that Russians are having a dialogue with North Koreans," he stressed in a Wednesday conversation with journalists at his ranch in Crawford, Texas.
Praising the participation of Japan and South Korea in the North Korean dialogue, Bush said he hoped the nuclear problem of Pyongyang could be solved by peaceful means.
"We've made good progress," he said.
Russian officials have repeatedly declared that Israeli aviation poses a threat to the Russian military in Syria.
