N. Korean FM to visit New York next month for U.N. meetings: report

North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho plans to visit New York next month to attend U.N. meetings, a U.S.-based media report said Saturday.

Ri Yong-ho plans to visit the United Nations in September, but no specific meetings have been scheduled with U.S. officials, Voice of America (VOA) said, citing multiple sources including a U.N. official.

The North's top diplomat earlier made the remark that the country could conduct yet another nuclear test depending on the "U.S.' attitude." Ri made the comment to reporters in Laos in late July, on the sidelines of a regional security forum.
