Feltman arrived in Pyongyang Tuesday and met with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho and other senior officials.

Upon the visit of UN political affairs chief Jeffrey Feltman, North Korean state media reported that the North has agreed with the United Nations to hold regular communication on various levels.

"The United Nations expressed concerns over the heightened situation on the Korean peninsula and expressed willingness to work on easing tensions on the Korean peninsula in accordance with the UN Charter which is based on worldwide peace and security", KCNA said.

The United States and South Korea conducted large-scale military drills this week, which the North said have made the outbreak of war "an established fact".

The visit by Feltman, an American citizen and former State Department official, comes just after Pyongyang's launch of its most advanced missile to date.

Earnings per share (EPS) shows a trader what portion of a company's profit is allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. Twenty-three equities research analysts have rated the stock with a hold rating and eight have issued a buy rating to the stock.

Though Feltman previously worked for the State Department, he is not representing the USA government.

The U.S. and South Korean exercises, however, came a week after North Korea test-fired a powerful new intercontinental ballistic missile that experts say is capable of reaching the U.S. The new ICBM is one of several missile tests conducted by Pyongyang, along with a series of nuclear tests, in defiance of global sanctions.

North Korea is also concerned about the effects global sanctions have had on the delivery of humanitarian aid.

KCNA said North Korean officials and Feltman agreed that his visit helped deepen understanding and that they agreed to communicate regularly.

KCNA stated Feltman visited a children's food plant and listened to explanations regarding the "commendable transformation of the factory into a modern food and beverage production base".
