North Korea’s crisis: World leaders gather at United Nations (UN)
North Korea’s power of nuclear weapons has been increased when North Korea launched long-range missiles this summer. Hence U.S. President Donald Trump and the other leaders of the world are now concerned for North Korea crisis.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley said Sunday that the Security Council had “exhausted” all options to curtail North Korea’s nuclear weapons program, and warned that the problem could be now be handed over to the U.S. military, which would see the rogue regime “destroyed.”
The threat comes ahead of President Donald Trump’s first U.N. speech Tuesday, with the issue of North Korea expected to dominate his address. On Sunday, members of the White House team offered previews of what the General Assembly will likely hear.

Haley said: “We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we can do at the Security Council at this point.” “If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed,” she added. While China and Russia have urged diplomacy, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told CBS Sunday that efforts with dialogue had already been exhausted: “We have tried a couple of times to signal to them that we’re ready when they’re ready,” he said. “And they have responded with more missile launches and a nuclear test.”
