Haley warns NKorea about attacking US base or testing ICBM

Haley warns NKorea about attacking US base or testing ICBM

She also criticised the North Korean leader, Kim Jong Un, as unstable and paranoid.

In another sign of the intense focus on Pyongyang in Washington, the White House is expected to host US senators for a top-level briefing on North Korea on Wednesday, a White House official said.

There are concerns that North Korea may carry out a long-range missile launch or another nuclear test on the military anniversary date.

North Korea is trying to show strength at home by detaining another U.S. citizen while overall Chinese pressure on the East Asian nation is "working", U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Monday morning. If a twerp like Kim can scare the USA with fewer than 15 nukes and no way of delivering them, why have we armed ourselves to the teeth with an estimated 6,800 nuclear-tipped missiles and spend more each year on our military than the next eight nations combined?

The Pentagon said its leaders and other top officials will give a classified briefing on North Korea to USA senators on Wednesday at the White House, rather than in the usual secure rooms at the Capitol.

He believed the early signs coming out of China, an ally of North Korea, were positive, it saying if the problem is going to be dealt with it needs to be through "China, America and the whole world". Trump spoke by phone with both the Japanese and Chinese leaders Monday, April 24.

Chinese President Xi Jinping called for all sides to exercise restraint on Monday in a call about North Korea with U.S. President Donald Trump, as Japan conducted joint drills with a U.S. aircraft carrier strike group headed for Korean waters.

Trump, in his phone call with Xi, criticised North Korea's "continued belligerence" and emphasised that its actions "are destabilising the Korean peninsula", the White House said.

North Korea has threatened Sunday to sink the San Diego-based aircraft carrier USS Carl Vinson, which was recently diverted to put it closer to the Korean Peninsula.

The Supreme Court today restored conspiracy charges against BJP leaders LK Advani, MM Joshi, Uma Bharti and others. In the last 25 years, 195 witnesses have been examined and 800 more are yet to testify before the court.

Missile and nuclear tests are often timed around major dates and speculation is now focused on Tuesday's anniversary of the founding of its military.

Part of the problem is China has less control over its trade with North Korea than it appears.

North Korea has conducted five nuclear tests, two of them a year ago, and is working to develop nuclear-tipped missiles that can reach the United States.

In sum, all parties concerned should exercise restraint and refrain from any remarks and action that will aggravate tensions on the Peninsula.

North Korea says its nuclear program is for self-defense and has warned the United States of a nuclear attack in response to any aggression.

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, on Monday called the latest detention of the U.S. citizen by North Korea a display of muscle-flexing by the country's "flailing" leader Kim Jong-Un.

The U.N. Security Council last week condemned the actions by North Korea as "highly destabilizing behavior".

"Until they show that they are in good faith, not going to test and not use nuclear weapons, we're not going to sit down and appease them by having talks with them", she said. "So far, North Korea has remained silent about Kim's detention", NPR reporter Anthony Kuhn.

Donald Trump has criticised North Korea's "belligerence" in a phone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping, amid escalating tensions between the U.S. and the North. Nikki Haley, Trump's United Nations ambassador, said Monday the USA wasn't looking for a fight with Kim and wouldn't attack North Korea "unless he gives us reason to do something".
