Haley: No Point in Having UNSC Session if to Produce Nothing

US

Some diplomats had expected the United States, Japan and South Korea to ask for the 15-member U.N. Security Council to meet on Monday over the test. Haley said on Sunday that the United States saw "no point in having an emergency session if it produces nothing of effect".

The ambassador denied reports that Washington was seeking an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council in response to Friday's test, saying an additional resolution will be of no value if it does not significantly increase global pressure on the North.

While noting that the Pyongyang regime is already subject to numerous UNSC resolutions that it violates with impunity, Haley stressed that China must decide whether it is finally willing to take the vital step.

Haley's comments represent a U-turn after she announced last week she was seeking China's support for a new resolution aimed at isolating North Korea. The time for talk is over.

Haley on Sunday released a statement, saying that there is no point in having an emergency session if it produces nothing of outcome.

Early in his presidency, US President Donald Trump met with Chinese President Xi Jinping and had expressed hope Beijing would use its economic clout to curb North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

North Korea on Friday tested a Hwasong-14 for the second time this month, reaching an altitude and distance in the test that defense experts believe indicate the missile could reach the continental United States, including Los Angeles and Chicago.

"Pyongyang is determined to develop its nuclear and missile program and does not care about military threats from the USA and South Korea". Our foolish past leaders have allowed them to make hundreds of billions of dollars a year in trade, yet.they do NOTHING for us with North Korea, just talk. "We will no longer allow this to continue", he said. "The danger the North Korean regime poses to worldwide peace is now clear to all", she said in a statement. "China could easily solve this problem!"

The US ambassador to the United Nations is "done talking about" North Korea and is urging its neighbours to act. He has not articulated a USA military response to North Korea's growing threats, but Congress last week approved a bill ordering sanctions on North Korea, as well as Iran and Russian Federation.
