Haley: Diplomacy efforts with North Korea 'pretty much exhausted'

Officials: Trump has military options for North Korea

Also on Sunday, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations warned the North that there are a lot of military options on the table.

"If I were giving the president advice, I would have said avoid using 'Rocket Man, '" Schumer said during a press conference at the U.S. Capitol.

And then a discussion session on North Korea will be held jointly by Gen. Vincent K. Brooks, commander of the U.S. Forces Korea; Choi Young-jin, South Korea's former ambassador to the U.S.; and Michael O'Hanlon, a senior research fellow at the Brookings Institution. He also told Fox News that Washington needs to move fast as Pyongyang continues to conduct nuclear and missile tests.

Mr Kim has vowed to complete his nation's nuclear programme.

"We have pretty much exhausted all the things that we can do at the Security Council at this point", ambassador Nikki Haley told CNN.

Haley added she was perfectly happy to hand the matter to Defence Secretary James Mattis.

Mattis said earlier this month, after Kim tested the hydrogen bomb, the USA will answer any threat from the North with a "massive military response, a response both effective and overwhelming". "And we all know that, and none of us want that".




Trump has threatened to rain "fire and fury" on North Korea if the North continues with its threats.

North Korea fired a ballistic missile over the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido Friday, the latest in a stream of missile tests that have looked to defy the worldwide community. He said the launch was part of the country's plan to achieve "equilibrium of real force" with the US. Haley said that wasn't an empty threat from the president but, when asked, she declined to describe the president's intentions.

"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 and we all know that and none of us want that", Haley said. "Too bad!" wrote Trump on his Twitter account on Sunday.

The United States has pushed to cut off oil and gas to the North, but it settled last week for modest cutbacks under a U.N. resolution. They believe a rare, potent rocket fuel that powers North Korea's weapons arrived in the country from China and Russian Federation.

Experts believe that previous sanctions have done little to deter Pyongyang in carrying out weapons tests. Ed Markey, D-Mass., who sits on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The Wall Street Journal and other news organizations reported Saturday that Trump administration officials, speaking at a climate meeting in Montreal, discussed a compromise that would involve staying in the deal but revising US climate change goals.
