United Nations political chief meets North Korean vice foreign minister

Foreign news media report that a senior United Nations official on a rare high-level visit to North Korea held talks with the North's foreign minister on Thursday.

"I would give an enthusiastic welcome to your Pyongyang visit", Ri, North Korea's former top nuclear negotiator who became foreign minister a year ago, told U.N. Undersecretary General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman. He arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday for a four or five-day stay.

However, Feltman will not be delivering any kind of message from Washington, U.S. State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said Tuesday. A delegation headed by State Department Special Representative Joseph Yun flew to Pyongyang to oversee the release of American college student Otto Warmbier in June this year.

It may take a while to find out exactly what is being discussed during Jeffrey Feltman's visit this week.

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

The spokesman said that the political chief would address "issues of mutual interest and concern" with North Korean officials, leading to anticipation that the visit could defuse geopolitical tensions. He is the most senior United Nations official to visit North Korea in more than six years.
