UN : North Korea keep communication channels open

United Nations has told North Korea that there is an urgent need to keep channels open to avoid the risk of war.

The UN said this in a statement after the visit of its under-secretary-general for political affairs Jeffrey Feltman’s to Pyongyang, the first highest-level trip by a UN official to the isolated nation in six years.

The statement said, during the visit, Mr Feltman had a series of meetings with North Korean Foreign Minister Yong Ho and his deputy PAK Myong Guk.

They exchanged views on the Korean Peninsula and agreed that the current situation was the most tense and dangerous peace and a security issue in the world.

The UN envoy emphasised the need for the implementation of all relevant Security Council resolutions. He said, there can only be a diplomatic solution to the situation, achieved through a process of sincere dialogue.

North Korea said, it has agreed to regular communication with the UN.
Mr Feltman’s visit came after the US and South Korea launched their biggest-ever annual joint air exercises.

The exercises were held a week after North Korea test-fired a powerful new intercontinental ballistic missile that experts say is capable of reaching the US.
