Just after the July 4th holiday, UN Ambassador Nikki Haley delivered a set of remarks to the UN regarding North Korea.
Haley’s remarks focused on their nuclear program and the death of an American college student and former N. Korean prisoner, Otto Warmbier.
“The United States is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies,” said Ambassador Haley. “One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction.”
Haley said that anyone trading with N. Korea would not be trading with the United States.
“We have great capabilities in the area of trade. President Trump has spoken repeatedly about this. I spoke with him at length about it this morning,” said Haley.
There are countries that are allowing, even encouraging, trade with North Korea in violation of U.N. Security Council resolutions. Such countries would also like to continue their trade arrangements with the United States,” Haley continued.
“That’s not going to happen,” she said flatly stated. “Our attitude on trade changes when do not take international security threats seriously.”
Here’s the clip of her remarks:
