Korean diplomat meets United Nations official

North Korea nearly never discloses the details of its discussions with foreign delegations, and the United Nations says it doesn't plan to brief the media until after Feltman, its undersecretary-general for political affairs, completes his four-day visit.

On Wednesday, he met with North Korean Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong-guk and Russian Ambassador to Pyongyang Alexander Matsegora.

U.N. Secretary General Antonio Guterres had, on several occasions, expressed his willingness to broker talks between North Korea and the global community.

North Korea invited Feltman for a "policy dialogue" when Ri was in NY in September for the U.N. General Assembly, according to a U.N. spokesman. He arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday for a four or five-day stay.

U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert has said Feltman is not visiting Pyongyang on behalf of Washington.

Feltman's trip marks the first high-ranking visit to the North by a United Nations official since his predecessor Lynn Pascoe traveled there in February 2010 and former United Nations humanitarian chief Valerie Amos visited in October 2011.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and U.S. President Donald Trump, meanwhile, have traded insults and engaged in escalating rhetoric in recent months.

While seeking a diplomatic solution to the nuclear issue, the Trump administration continues to call for more pressure on North Korea.

His visit comes amid high tensions on the Korean Peninsula following North Korea's intercontinental ballistic missile launch last Wednesday.
