A senior North Korean official in charge of USA affairs embarked her Russian Federation trip on Monday, Pyongyang's state media reported, amid escalating tensions on the Korean Peninsula over the North's nuclear program.

Cited by RIA, Mikhail Ulyanov, the head of the non-proliferation and arms controls department at Russia's foreign ministry, also said the United States approach to North Korea was a dead end and the tool of sanctions against the North had nearly been exhausted.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the North Korean official also met with Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Igor Morgulov.

A senior diplomat of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) left Monday for Moscow to hold talks with Russian officials on unspecified issues, the official Korean Central News Agency reported.

After North Korea's latest and most powerful nuclear test earlier this month, the UN Security Council approved new sanctions on the country.
