UN Has 'Exhausted Options' on North Korea, Says US Ambassador

UN Has 'Exhausted Options' on North Korea, Says US Ambassador

We have pretty much-exhausted all the things we can do at the Security Council at this point.

Trump called the move "another very small step", but Haley talked up the significance of the agreement and went on to say it was near the limit of what the United States could accomplish through the UN. "If that doesn't work, General Mattis" - the United States defense secretary - "will take care of it".

She added, "If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed".

Haley told an emergency session of the U.N. Security Council that "enough is enough" from North Korea, which she said must face the "strongest possible measures" from the council for conducting continued missile tests.

"It is a new day at the U.N.", U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said in the interview with CNN's State of the Union. Haley said that wasn't an empty threat from the president but, when asked, she declined to describe the president's intentions. "None of us want war", she added.

And Trump tweets that he's asked Moon about "Rocket Man" - an apparent reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon).

McMaster repeated that the United States demands North Korea give up its nuclear weapons and that "all options" remain on the table.

Analysts say that in the event of hostilities, millions of people in the Seoul area - as well as the 30,000 U.S. troops in South Korea - would be vulnerable to attack by the thousands of artillery pieces the North has positioned near the border, with potentially staggering casualties.

On Friday, Haley told reporters at the White House that North Korea has been "strangled" by sanctions and said military options remain squarely on the table if sanctions are not effective.

Trump also says long gas lines are forming in North Korea, calling it "too bad".

North Korea will be high on the agenda for world leaders this coming week at the annual meeting of the UN General Assembly.

Appearing on ABC television's This Week, National Security Adviser HR McMaster reiterated that "all options are on the table" if North Korea does not abandon its nuclear weapons program.

Mr Trump wrote on Twitter that he asked the South Korean President how "Rocket Man" was doing.

McMaster said Trump's scheduled speech Tuesday at the U.S. General Assembly in NY will "communicate his vision for America's role in the world" in three areas: protecting American people, promoting American prosperity and promoting accountability and sovereignty. "I think it was the fact that he was just very concerned and very disturbed". North Korea also recently tested its most powerful nuclear bomb yet. "We said that we needed to get value for our dollar, and what we're finding that the global community is right there with us".
