N Korea Agrees To Communicate Regularly With UN At Various Levels

N. Korean diplomat meets U.N. official

The meeting between Jeffrey Feltman and Ri Yong-ho took place barely a week after North Korea launched its most sophisticated intercontinental ballistic missile to date, an action that may lead to a new round of UN Security Council sanctions, Efe news reported.

A senior United Nations official left Pyongyang on Saturday after four days of talks with the North Korean Foreign Ministry.

Feltman, the highest-ranking American in the United Nations secretariat, is the first person in that post to visit North Korea since February 2010.

It is the first trip of a UN Political Affairs chief to North Korea since his predecessor, also Lynn Pascoe visited in February 2010.

DPRK is the abbreviation for North Korea's official name, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea.

Mr Atkins will remain in place, along with Hammerson's chairman David Tyler and chief financial officer Tim Drakesmith. The acquisition will give Hammerson shareholders a 55 per cent stake in the firm and Intu shareholders the remainder.

Kim Hyun-uk of the Korea National Diplomatic Academy said the dialogue will not make a significantly positive impact on the peninsula, given North Korea's standing position on nuclear weapons. Though Feltman previously worked for the State Department, he is not representing the USA government.

North Korea's official news agency on Wednesday quoted an unnamed Foreign Ministry spokesman strongly criticizing senior US administration officials' "bellicose remarks" and the ongoing military exercises.

North Korea is also concerned about the effects worldwide sanctions have had on the delivery of humanitarian aid. He flew to Beijing Saturday.

The North's official Korean Central News Agency reported that North Korea and the UN Secretariat agreed the recent visit served to deepen mutual understanding and the two sides agreed to regularize such contacts and communication.
