The Associated Press said that Jeffrey Feltman, UN undersecretary-general for political affairs, met with Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho on the second day of his visit.

"The tense situation of the peninsula is entirely ascribable to the United States hostile policy and nuclear threat and blackmail against North Korea".

The comments were carried by the official Korean Central News Agency late Wednesday, hours after the United States flew a B-1B supersonic bomber over South Korea as part of a massive combined aerial exercise involving hundreds of warplanes.

Feltman's visit to the North was made known in Pyongyang's state media on Friday, South Korean television network SBS reported.

South Korea's Joint Chiefs of Staff said the Guam-based bomber simulated land strikes at a military field near South Korea's eastern coast during a drill with US and South Korean fighter jets.

Kosachev added that there is no alternative to the Russian-Chinese settlement plan for the North Korean situation.

The trip, made in response to an invitation from Pyongyang, comes almost a week after the North test-fired a new intercontinental ballistic missile it says is capable of reaching the USA mainland.
