N. Korea brings world closer to war: Haley at UN

Prime News, International (Washington), November 30:- North Koreas latest test of an intercontinental ballistic missile has brought the world “closer to war”, US ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley warned at an emergency meeting with the members of the UN Security Council in New York and urged all nations to ties with the rogue regime.

Speaking at the UN Security Council on Wednesday, Haley said: “The dictator of North Korea made a choice yesterday that brings the world closer to war, not farther from it.”

“We have never sought war with North Korea, and still today we do not seek it. If war does come… make no mistake, the North Korean regime will be utterly destroyed.”

Haley said the Trump administration warned North Korea that its future is in the hands of its leaders and the choice was theirs. With the launch, she said, Kim Jong-un’s regime made a choice “and with this choice comes a critical choice for the rest of the world”, CNN reported.

She stressed that the nations of the world “have it within our power, to further isolate, diminish, and… reverse the dangerous course of the North Korean regime” and called on all nations to “cut off all ties with North Korea.

“In addition to fully implementing all UN sanctions, all countries should sever diplomatic relations with North Korea and limit military, scientific, technical or commercial cooperation,” she said.

“They must also cut off trade with the regime by stopping all imports and exports and expel all North Korean workers.”

Haley said President Donald Trump had asked his Chinese counterpart to cut off oil supplies to Pyongyang. “We need China to do more,” she said.

“We know the main driver of its nuclear production is oil,” she said. “The major supplier of that oil is China.” (MR, Inputs: Agencies).
