North Korea sends 'positive signal' about UN chief's visit

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says he has received "a bit of a positive signal" from North Korea about his plan to visit the reclusive country. Ban cautioned that nothing had been decided but said he had discussed the proposed visit with North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Su Young when he was in New York for the UN General Assembly.

"Recently, on this, there has been a bit of a positive signal from the DPRK, and we are at the moment coordinating when would be the best time to visit the DPRK, but so far nothing has been decided," Ban told South Korean journalists at UN headquarters on Monday.
