Senior UN official meets North Korea's deputy overseas minister

N. Korean diplomat meets U.N. official

The KCNA earlier reported that he met North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and visited United Nations project sites Thursday.

KCNA, North Korea's state run news service, said Saturday this latest development is a result of a senior U.N. official's recent visit to the isolated nation.

North Korean officials rarely brief the media on the content of discussions with foreign dignitaries.

In a speech to the U.N. General Assembly in September, Foreign Minister Ri defended his country's missile and nuclear programs as a "righteous self-defensive measure" in the face of US hostility and nuclear threats.

Feltman, who visited several UN-assisted health and food production facilities in North Korea, acknowledged that the sanctions imposed on the country "are negatively affecting the humanitarian assistance" and expressed his intention "to strive for cooperation in keeping with the humanitarian mission", according to KCNA.

Federal Bureau of Investigation chief defends agency after Trump says it's in "tatters"
Wray said he will not hesitate to hold people accountable "after there has been an appropriate investigation , independent and objective, by the inspector general".

"From North Korea's perspective, a country that has declared the completion of its nuclear weapons power, the dialogue was a great opportunity for their position to be presented to the global community", said Kim Yong-hyun, a professor of North Korean studies at Dongguk University in Seoul.

Feltman is the first person in his position to visit Pyongyang since 2010.

Although Feltman does not represent the United States, hopes are high that visits by him or other diplomats, a senior Chinese official visited last month, might help relieve tensions that have been growing amid threats and taunts between Pyongyang and Washington.
