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

American Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said President Trump's "fire and fury" warning to North Korea over threats to the United States earlier this year was not an empty threat.

In her interview on CNN, Haley said Trump would not want to harm an investigation but was "emotional and passionate" about what happened in the UK.

"I think under the right conditions, the president said he's open to finding those conditions where we can remain engaged with others on what we all agree is still a challenging issue", he responded.

"This regime is so close now to threatening the United States and others with a nuclear weapon, that we really have to move with a great sense of urgency on sanctions, on diplomacy and preparing, if necessary, a military option", he said.

"We have pretty much exhausted all the things we could do at the Security Council", she said. "I have no problem kicking it to Gen. [Jim] Mattis, because I think he has plenty of options".

USA ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says the UN Security Council has run out of options to contain North Korea's nuclear program, adding Washington may have to turn the matter over to the Pentagon.

NORTH Korea will be "destroyed" it if continues with "reckless behaviour" the US United Nations ambassador has said. But she added: "None of us want that".

WASHINGTON-The White House on Sunday reiterated its position that North Korean leader Kim Jong Un must give up his nuclear weapons, days after President Donald Trump hinted again at a military strike on the North.

"That is where the rockets and missiles are coming from".

"North Korea is not going to give up its program with nothing on the table", Feinstein said on CNN. They plan to meet this week at the U.N. General Assembly.

That assistance will likely be on the table and up for discussion for the two countries as the United Nations General Assembly meets for its annual gathering in NY this week.

Last week, Haley touted the U.N. sanctions on the North, saying that, if enacted, they would cut off 30 percent of oil imports and curtail 90 percent of Kim's exports, putting a major economic pinch on a government that has long struggled to provide for the nation's estimated 25 million people.

Mr Mattis has warned the consequences of any military action would be "tragic on an unbelievable scale" and bring severe risk to US ally South Korea.

Another official with the Trump administration, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, also appeared on CBS to highlight the point.

"The four no's being that we do not seek regime change, we do not seek a regime collapse, we do not seek an accelerated reunification of the peninsula, and we do not seek a reason to send our forces north of the demilitarized zone", Tillerson told CBS News' John Dickerson on "Face the Nation".
