North Korea's foreign minister will visit New York City next month to attend the UN General Assembly becoming the first North Korean foreign minister to visit the U.S. in fifteen years.
Sources say Ri Su-yong will deliver a keynote address at the session as a state representative.
Political observers are watching to see whether the visit will foster improved ties between Pyongyang and Washington.
Observers say there's a high possibility that Ri will hold talks with U.S. officials during his visit.
The last time a North Korean foreign minister attended the UN General Assembly was back in 1999.
