United Nations envoy Jeffrey Feltman, a former high-level US State Department official, is not carrying any message from the US government while visiting North Korea for talks on behalf of the world body, the State Department said on Tuesday.

Feltman is currently the UN undersecretary-general for political affairs. Previously he served as US assistant secretary of state for Near Eastern affairs.

“We’re certainly aware of his travels under the auspices of his role with the United Nations to North Korea,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters. “He’s not travelling on behalf of the US government and he’s not travelling -I want to make this clearwith any kind of message from the US government.”
