Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) met Wednesday with a visiting special envoy of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, the official news agency KCNA reported.

The report didn't mention any details of the meeting.

The special envoy, Lynn Pascoe, arrived in Pyongyang on Tuesday.

Upon his arrival at Pyongyang's international airport, Pascoe told Xinhua that he and DPRK officials would mainly discuss ways to enhance cooperation between the United Nations and the DPRK.

Pascoe, undersecretary-general for political affairs, was the first high-level UN official to visit the country since 2004.

During a earlier visit to South Korea, Pascoe said he expected to "talk about an entire range of issues" during the visit. Talks between the two sides were expected to cover the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula.
