Haley: Diplomacy efforts with North Korea 'pretty much exhausted'

"Next week is not going to be short on topics", the US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, told reporters at the White House on Friday.

McMaster and Haley both insisted that the US does have military options in the dispute, contrary to conventional wisdom that the city of Seoul's vulnerability to a North Korean counterattack rules out the possibility of a strike.

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

Trump's speech on Tuesday at the UN General Assembly will be his highest profile opportunity to explain his foreign policy vision couched in his America First agenda.

Speaking after a Council meeting at which it condemned North Korea's latest ballistic missile test earlier in the day, Nebenzya said that the United Nations sanctions resolution also called for negotiations with North Korea to resolve the standoff, and Washington must now honor that call.

The missile launch, which violates UN Security Council resolutions, came just days after the council imposed fresh sanctions on North Korea over its nuclear test on September 3.

"If our diplomatic efforts fail though, our military option will be the only one left", he said.

Trump's appearance at the United Nations - highlighted by an address Tuesday before the world body - is his biggest moment on the world stage since taking office. And we all know that.

Trump's earlier warning he would rain "fire and fury" on a recalcitrant North Korea, she said, was "not an empty threat".

Trump plans to meet with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean President Moon Jae-in on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

On Sunday morning, Trump called the North Korea leader "Rocket Man", which was a 1972 song sung by Elton John.

The defence ministry was addressing its assessment of North Korea's test of an intermediate-range missile that was launched over Japan on Friday.

White House national security adviser H.R. McMaster said Friday, after the latest North Korean missile launch, that the USA was running out of patience: "We've been kicking the can down the road, and we're out of road".

U.N. Security Council veto powers Russian Federation and China did not sign the declaration.

"The increased moves of the US and its vassal forces to impose sanctions and pressure ... will only increase our pace towards the ultimate completion of the state nuclear force", the North's foreign ministry spokesman said in a statement carried by its official KCNA news agency.

"We must ensure that no one and no member state shoulders a disproportionate share of the burden and that's militarily or financially".

"We called on our USA partners and others to implement political and diplomatic solutions that are provided for in the resolution", he said.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, meanwhile, said Sunday that Trump should not rule out talks with North Korea before it agrees to end its nuclear program.

"Honestly, I think the United States should be doing.much more than now, so that there's real effective worldwide cooperation on this issue", Ambassador Cui Tiankai told reporters at the Chinese Embassy in Washington on September 15.

As he welcomes leaders from almost 200 nations to his hometown of NY, he'll press them to join USA efforts to constrain missile and nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran.
