NSA Adviser, UN Ambassador Outline UNGA Schedule
On Thursday, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said Security Council resolutions "represent the floor, not the ceiling, of the actions we should take". "The United Kingdom stands with the people of Japan in face of this awful, egregious, illegal, provocative, reckless act by the North Korean regime, which once again demonstrates their complete disregard for the sovereignty and the citizens of one of their neighbours", the British Ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft told reporters after the meeting of the Security Council.
The three worldwide goals Trump will emphasize on the visit are "peace", "prosperity" and "sovereignty", McMaster said. A new set of United Nations sanctions that even Trump declared a "small step", extensive talks and a rhetorical two-step that leaves them where they have been for years.
"At that point, you know, there's not a whole lot the Security Council is going to be able to do", Ambassador Nikki Haley said, claiming global sanctions already have cut off 90 percent of North Korea's trade and 30 percent of its oil. The North Koreans must have been confident that their latest test - an audacious advance by some 1,000km on their earlier (29 August) overflight of Japan - would be successful and that the risk of the missile breaking up over Japanese airspace was minimal.
Nebenzia urged North Korea to "stop it" and said the only political proposal to resolve the standoff was the joint Russian-Chinese "freeze for freeze". Now, however, with North Korea perilously close to being able to directly threaten United States cities with nuclear obliteration, the worry for some is that Pyongyang could blackmail Washington into qualifying or limiting its support for its allies in the region.
Trump's United Nations envoy called North Korea "reckless".
The U.S. Pacific Command said in a statement, "Initial assessment indicates the launch of an intermediate-range ballistic missile" that did not pose a threat to Guam.
The South Korean military responded to the provocation from the North by launching a Hyunmoo-II missile into the sea that traveled the distance it would take to reach the Sunan airfield in Pyongyang, according to a military spokesman.
US President Donald Trump has scheduled talks with leaders of Japan and South Korea to address the crisis.
Still, a reporter noted North Korea's behavior isn't really changing.
North Korea said earlier this month it was developing a hydrogen bomb that could carry out an EMP attack. She said, however, that options for dealing with the regime of Kim Jong Un are not limited to diplomacy. "China and Russian Federation must indicate their intolerance for these reckless missile launches by taking direct actions of their own", Tillerson said.
"There is a military option".
At the beginning of this year, North Korea's Kim announced plans to develop an intercontinental ballistic missile that could strike the US mainland.
