US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley doubled-down on the Trump administration’s position that Kim Jong Un must totally abandon his nuclear program, warning the world body that the US is absolutely unwilling to co-exist with a nuclear-equipped North Korea.
According to CNN, Haley was addressing world leaders when she confirmed President Trump’s decision that the communist regime must totally abandon its nuclear and missile programs or face the full-might of America’s military.
“As we hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test — I hope that does not happen, but if it does — we must bring even more measures to bear on the North Korea regime,” said Haley. “The civilized world must remain united and vigilant against the rogue state’s nuclear arsenal. We will never accept a nuclear North Korea.”
The Ambassador was then asked to weigh-on on Kim’s olive branch to South Korea earlier this week, hoping for high-level talks between the communist nation and staunch US ally.
“We won’t take any of the talks seriously if they don’t do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea. We consider this to be a very reckless regime, we don’t think we need a Band-Aid and we don’t think we need to smile and take a picture,” she added. “We think that we need to have them stop nuclear weapons and they need to stop it now.
