As UN envoy visits, a look at N.Korea's diplomatic pipelines

Jeffrey Feltman (L, 2nd from top), United Nations undersecretary general for political affairs, holds talks with North Korea's Vice Foreign Minister Pak Myong-guk in Pyongyang on December 6, 2017, in this photo released by the North's Korean Central News Agency.

The North's Korean Central News Agency said Wednesday the two officials had "exchanged views on areas of common interest regarding United Nations agencies in cooperating with North Korea".

The U.N. political affairs chief received a warm welcome on Thursday as he held talks with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho, with Pyongyang's nuclear and missile programs likely high on the agenda.

Before the meeting took place, the North Korean official expressed his hope that the discussion would be "full of sincerity", Kyodo News reported. Six UN agencies, with approximately 50 worldwide staff, are represented in the North.

The video app which exploded as a popular social media platform, with cross pollination all over the internet, is coming back. Vine was an interesting platform, but in a couple years, it started losing momentum, and eventually was shut down .

North Korea's decision to hold talks with a senior United Nations official, who is also an American citizen and former USA diplomat, presents a rare opportunity for both sides to sound each other out in the increasingly isolated North Korean capital.

Though Feltman previously worked for the State Department, he is not representing the USA government. He arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday for a four or five-day stay.

Haley said that with the missile launch, North Korean leader Kim has made a choice "that brings the world closer to war, not farther from it".
