US aims to sway China on North Korea sanctions

US aims to sway China on North Korea sanctions

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley pledged Tuesday that the US plans to "tighten the screws" on North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Rosselli, the Uruguayan ambassador to the United Nations, voiced absolute rejection of the continued nuclear tests and missile launches conducted by North Korea, adding the council will be working on ways to resolve the threat.

"If you are a country that is supplying or supporting North Korea, we will call you out on it".

The council demanded North Korea halt its tests and said it was ready to impose further sanctions.

The United States has been discussing possible new U.N. sanctions with Pyongyang's ally and neighbor China since a failed missile test about two weeks ago.

The Security Council first imposed sanctions on North Korea in 2006 and has stiffened them in response to its five nuclear tests and two long-range rocket launches.

Asked whether North Korea's missile programme was developing faster than expected, he said: "Yes".

On Tuesday, US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley accused North Korea of threatening the entire world with its military actions.

"The actions of North Korea are unacceptable", Harris said at the outset of a meeting with Japanese foreign minister Fumio Kishida.

Haley noted that this weekend's missile came within 60 miles of Russia's border and said Russian Federation is "all wrong".

The South Korean military has said that the descending rate of the Hwasong-12 missile was somewhere between Mach 15 and 24, which falls short of the minimum falling rate of Mach 24 that any intercontinental ballistic missile would have recorded.

She said North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is "paranoid" and thinks that the United States is trying to promote regime change and that there are people trying to assassinate him.

The UNSC and Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on Monday both slammed the missile launches conducted by North Korea.

"We can not be in a "wait and see" mode until the next provocation occurs, " said France's Ambassador François Delattre.

"We are willing to talk, but not until we see a total stop of the nuclear process and of any test there", the United States envoy, Nikki Haley, told reporters ahead of a closed-door Security Council meeting.

"Absolutely, sanctions (are) something that we are looking at and we are going to continue to see where that takes us".
