"It's time for 'half measures' against North Korea to end" urges US Ambassador to the United Nations
September 5 , 2017
Speaking at the United Nations Security Council emergency meeting in New York, Nikki Hailey urged the United Nations Security Council to adopt the strongest sanctions possible to stop Pyongyang's nuclear programs. On Monday, America's top diplomat warned that North Korea is 'begging for war' and further added that it is time for 'half measures' against North Korea to end, after North Korea successfully tested its hydrogen bomb on Sunday. During the meeting, the US Ambassador said, “the time has come to exhaust all of our diplomatic means before its too late.” China has called for a return to negotiations amidst this. Nikki Hailey said that the Nuclear powers understand their responsibilities and Kim Jong-Un has shown no such understanding. Amidst this, North Korea has moved an inter-continental ballistic missile towards its west coast.
