While the Security Council has strengthened sanctions against North Korea, 13 countries, including Angola, Cuba, Iran, Myanmar and Syria, were found to have military ties with Pyongyang, which continues nuclear and missile development programs.
The UN official was scheduled to meet other representatives of the North Korean regime to discuss matters of mutual interest and concerns.
Feltman was a leading official in the U.S. State Department from 2009-12, before moving to the UN. Secretary Tillerson has made it clear that a good first step for North Korea would be to stop testing nuclear devices and missiles.

Although not representing the USA 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.
Analysts in South Korea say the visit is a significant gesture for North Korea.
