MOSCOW Oct 12 (Reuters) - Russia is bewildered by the latest North Korean missile launch, Itar-Tass news agency quoted a Foreign Ministry source as saying on Monday.

"The launch of short-range missiles by the Korean People's Democratic Republic causes bewilderment," the source said. "It was not the most suitable time to do this now, when all efforts are made to restart six-way talks on Korea's nuclear problem." There has been no official reaction in Moscow so far to the firing of two short-range missiles off North Korea's east coast. Russia says its priority is restarting the six-way talks also involving both Koreas, the United States, China and Japan. (Writing by Oleg Shchedrov)
