PYONGYANG- On Thursday, a senior United Nations official visited North Korea and held talks with the North's foreign minister.

Jeffrey Feltman, the UN undersecretary-general for political affairs, met with Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho on the second full day of the highest-level UN visit to the North since 2010. 

On Wednesday, North Korea's official news agency quoted an anonymous Foreign Ministry spokesman strongly denouncing senior US administration officials' "bellicose remarks" and the ongoing military exercises.

"The remaining question now is: when will the war break out," it said.
