USA ambassador: North Korea will be 'destroyed'


Even so, she said that if North Korea does not stop what it is doing right now, then, the U.S. might resort to seeking the military force's help.

"We're out of time", McMaster said. She also reiterated China's position that sanctions on North Korea are only effective if paired with talks.

Haley says President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" threat against North Korea wasn't an empty threat.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido Friday local time, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the worldwide community.

"We're trying every other possibility that we have but there's a whole lot of military options on the table", she said. "None of us want war", Haley told CNN.

"Honestly, I think the United States should be doing ... much more than now, so that there's real effective global cooperation on this issue", Cui said, noting that it firmly opposes the nuclear weapons anywhere on the Korean peninsula and would never recognize the DPRK as a nuclear state.

Speaking at Joint Base Andrews, the Air Force installation outside Washington, Trump declared that American military options were robust should they be required to respond to threats from Pyongyang.

"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 CNN.

The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country. "There's no military solution here, they got us".

Speaking back in April 2017, the president said: "The United States, just one of 193 countries in the U.N., pays for 22 percent of the budget and nearly 30 percent of the United Nations peacekeeping, which is unfair", Reuters reported.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told CBS' "Face the Nation" that the US has attempted to engage Pyongyang, to no avail.

The White House says Trump and Moon are committed to continuing to take steps to strengthen deterrence and defense capabilities, and maximize economic and diplomatic pressure on North Korea.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster said Trump "will urge all states to come together to address great dangers" facing the globe.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said she was very concerned about North Korea's rapid nuclear buildup.

Despite the obvious downplay of the North Korean issue in the Chinese statement, the fact that the two leaders have maintained frequent contact demonstrates their mutual anxiety over the crisis.
