UN envoy not carrying US government message on North Korea visit: US official

U.N. Undersecretary General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman arrived in the North Korean capital Tuesday, a week after Pyongyang conducted its new intercontinental ballistic missile test.

During his stay, Feltman is also expected to meet Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho, who extended the invitation to Pyongyang for the objective of a "policy dialogue" in September, a United Nations spokesman said Monday.

The two officials are said to have discussed Russian involvement in humanitarian programs in the North as well as assess the current situation on the Korean peninsula.

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.

On Wednesday, Feltman met with the Russian ambassador to North Korea Alexander Matsegora, according to the Russian embassy's website.

Six U.N. agencies, with about 50 global staff, are represented in the North.
