The U.N. did not offer detail as to the subject of the talks, but Feltman is expected to also meet foreign minister Ri and U.N. staff based in the country, the Associated Press reported.
China has condemned North Korean nuclear tests and gradually distanced themselves from their once-close ally, even backing United Nations sanctions against the fellow socialist country in September following a test of their nuclear program.
U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham on Sunday urged the Pentagon to start moving U.S. military dependants, such as spouses and children, out of South Korea, saying conflict with North Korea was getting close.

The numbers are considered a proxy for layoffs, and they offer an encouraging sign that the USA labor market continues to improve. The two-year yield dipped to 1.79 percent from 1.81 percent, and the 30-year yield sank to 2.70 percent from 2.73 percent.
Though Chinese military officials will likely claim that the new drills are not in direct response to US and South Korean actions, military experts agree that this show of force warns against the continued provocation of North Korea.
U.S. B-1B Lancer bombers will fly over the Korean peninsula on Wednesday as part of a large-scale joint aerial drill being staged with South Korea this week, the South's Yonhap news agency reported, citing an unidentified military source.

"If necessary, the president and the United States will have to take care of it, because he has said he's not going to allow this murderous, rogue regime to threaten the United States with the-with the most-destructive weapons on the planet".
The North has warned the drills would push the Korean peninsula to "the brink of nuclear war". North Korea's increasing nuclear and missile capability would top the agenda, it said. F-22 Raptors, F-35 Lightning IIs, F-16 Fighting Falcons, F-15 Eagles, F/A-18 Hornets and EA-18G Growlers will be flying alongside South Korean F-15K Slam Eagles and F-4 Phantom IIs during the wargame under realistic wartime conditions.
