Sanctions against North Korea must be slowly eased as part of the process of its de-nuclearisation and all sides must meet each other halfway during negotiations, according to Russia's foreign minister.

On a visit to Pyongyang on Thursday, Lavrov met North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and called for the phased lifting of sanctions on North Korea, indicating Pyongyang would not give up its nuclear weapons programme until that happens.

Al Jazeera's Rob McBride reports from Seoul.
