North Korea says United Nations envoy expressed willingness to ease tensions on peninsula

Feltman's visit to the North was made known in Pyongyang's state media on Friday, South Korean television network SBS reported.

"In Washington, a U.S. State Department spokeswoman said the Trump administration still wanted a peaceful, diplomatic solution to the nuclear and missile threat from Pyongyang but said: "(North Korea) has shown through its actions that it is not interested in talks.

Earlier, the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) released a statement of North Korea's foreign ministry official that said that the statements made by American high-profile officials and the joint drills conducted by the US and South Korea show that Washington is trying to trigger war on the Korean Peninsula which North Korea will not be hiding from.

The Chinese are praising Feltman's visit to North Korea.

The trip, made in response to an invitation from Pyongyang, comes almost a week after the North test-fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile it says is capable of reaching the US mainland.

North Korea has suggested its readiness to come to the negotiation table if the United States agrees to recognize it as a nuclear weapon state. Although not representing the US on this mission, it could be seen playing a role in the very active diplomacy now going on behind the scenes between Russia, China, South Korea, North Korea and the Trump Administration.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley urged all countries to completely cut ties with North Korea in an emergency meeting of the 15-member Security Council last week that followed the country's third ICBM test.

Indications of North Korea's willingness emerged following a Russian parliamentary delegation visited the North Korean leadership around the end of November.

"We have channels, through which we are conducting a dialogue, and we are ready to deploy them, we are ready to exert our influence on North Korea", Morgulov was quoted as saying at a conference in Berlin. "And if war comes, make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed".
