Several countries have urged the United Nations to hold urgent talks in response to North Korea’s launch of a ballistic missile.
North Korea has launched what appears to be a ballistic missile into the Sea of Japan, claiming it has the ability to strike anywhere on the US continent. China responded by urging Pyongyang not to raise tensions.
A top UN official said he encouraged North Korea to be open to "talks about talks" during a visit to the country. The United States also appeared to drop preconditions for talking with North Korea.
Moscow has called US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson's comments "constructive." US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had appeared to reverse US North Korea policy.
The UN's Undersecretary-General Jeffrey Feltman is leading the organization's highest-level visit to Pyongyang in more than six years. It comes amid massive war games on the peninsula and after a successful missile test.
