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. Feltman discussed United Nations assistance and operations in North Korea along with "other matters of mutual concern", North Korean media said, as cited by AP.

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

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.

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. Six UN agencies, with approximately 50 global staff, are represented in the North. Previously he served as USA assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs. "He's not traveling on behalf of the US government and he's not traveling -I want to make this clear - with any kind of message from the USA government".
