United Nations (UN) Under-Secretary-General for Political Affairs Jeffrey Feltman has arrived in North Korea on December 5 afternoon, the China Central Television reported. 

Feltman will visit the North Korea from December 5-8 and meet officials of the Pyongyang regime, a UN spokesman Stefan Dujarrik said on Monday.

He will meet with North Korea Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho and Vice Minister Pak Myong Guk, said Dujarric, adding that the visit was in response to "a long-standing invitation from the authorities in Pyongyang for a policy dialogue with the UN."

This is the first time that a high-ranking UN politico travells to North Korea since UN Under Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator Valerie Amos's visit in 2011.
