Haley: UN Out of Options on North Korea

Haley: UN Out of Options on North Korea”

Haley tells CNN's "State of the Union" that the U.N. Security Council has basically exhausted its diplomatic options for dealing with North Korea.

Speaking on political talk shows, both the USA ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson warned that despite seeking a peaceful solution, the Trump administration would not rule out the military option for North Korea.

Haley added she was perfectly happy to hand the matter to Defence Secretary James Mattis. She talked up a shift to unilateral USA military options.

Since early spring, United States officials have been threatening military action against North Korea multiple times a week.

Also on Sunday, Rex Tillerson gave an interview to the program Face the Nation on CBS, in which he said that United States policy toward North Korea consisted of the "four no's", namely "we do not seek regime change, do not seek the regime's collapse, do not seek accelerated reunion ... of the peninsula", and that there are no plans to bring American forces north of the demilitarized zone (DMZ) separating the two Koreas.

The warnings came a day after North Korean leader Kim Jong Un vowed to continue the weapons programs, saying his country is nearing its goal of "equilibrium" in military force with the United States.

Kim has threatened Guam, a USA territory in the Pacific, and has fired two missiles over Japan, a U.S. ally in Asia, including one missile launched on Friday.

North Korea has launched a trio of missiles in recent weeks and tested a bomb that was its most powerful to date.

In response, Moon said both countries should intensify efforts to lobby China and Russian Federation to carry out the sanctions that were adopted by the U.N. Security Council in response to North Korea's nuclear test on September 3. And we all know that.

"You have to ask the president what fire and fury meant", Haley said.

"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 and we all know that and none of us want that", Haley said. Long gas lines forming in North Korea.

U.N. Ambassador to the United States Nikki Haley discusses the North Korean issue with reporters at the White House on Friday.
