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

United Nations envoy Jeffrey Feltman, a former high-level U.S. State Department official, is not carrying any message from the U.S. government while visiting North Korea for talks on behalf of the world body, the State Department said on Tuesday.

The North Korean official, Pak Myong Guk, and Feltman discussed bilateral cooperation and other issues of mutual interest, the KCNA news agency reported.

According to Associated Press on Thursday, the UN Undersecretary General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman held talks with Ri at the Mansudae Assembly Hall in Pyongyang.

North Korean officials rarely brief the media on the content of discussions with foreign dignitaries. Six UN agencies, with approximately 50 global staff, are represented in the North.

Though Feltman previously worked for the State Department, he is not representing the US government.

The Mansudae Assembly Hall hosts the regime's parliamentary meetings in addition to various state events and meetings between foreign visitors and North Korean officials.
