Haley: Trump's fire, fury comment 'not an empty threat'

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley ratcheted up the rhetoric against North Korea on Sunday US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley ratcheted up the rhetoric against North Korea on Sunday

A North Korean government entity said last week that Japan "should be sunken into the sea by the nuclear bomb" of the regime and warned it would "reduce the United States mainland to ashes and darkness".

The ambassador also said Wednesday there are "lots of military options" the United States could use against North Korea, but "no one wants war".

North Korea launched a missile over Japan into the Pacific Ocean on Thursday in defiance of new U.N. Security Council sanctions banning its textile exports and capping imports of crude oil.

Haley further discussed Trump's speech at the United Nations General Assembly, and asserted that the president's words would help mobilize the worldwide community to take action against North Korea and Iran.

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behaviour, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed".

"I stress that we must not be simply complacent with the adoption of these sanctions", the prime minister said, adding, "We must thoroughly enforce the successive resolutions in order to prevent North Korea from obtaining the goods, technologies, funds and people to further develop its missiles and nuclear program".

South Korean F-15Ks and Japanese F-2s accompanied the U.S. planes, the statement said. "North Korea", Mr McMaster said. "So I will tell you that, look, this is a way of like, you know, getting people to talk about him but every other global community now is referring to him as 'Rocket Man'".

We have to look at a very competitive marketplace, we have to understand that we have the resources to absolutely be competitive. But the level of financial concern in the NU system is "much worse than we anticipated" a year ago, Green told the audience.

And Trump tweets that he's asked Moon about "Rocket Man" - an apparent reference to North Korean leader Kim Jong Un (kim jawng oon).

Trump also says long gas lines are forming in North Korea, calling it "too bad".

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he was waiting for the North to express interest in "constructive, productive talks". Looming behind them will be the prospect of renewed warfare on the Korean peninsula, with Ms Haley alluding to an official - Mr Mattis - who recently stressed America's ability to marshal and "overwhelming" and "massive" military response that could result in the "total annihilation" of North Korea.

According to the Associated Press, China accounts for about 90 percent of North Korea's trade.

Haley's remarks came after she attended a ministerial meeting hosted by British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson on Myanmar on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly.

"I think that North Korea is not going to give up its program with nothing on the table", she said on CNN. North Korea has said it would press ahead with its nuclear program despite being hit with the second round of United Nations sanctions in as many months.
