US calls for “strongest measures” against North Korea

US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley says it is time for the UN Security Council to impose “the strongest possible measures” on North Korea over its sixth and largest nuclear test because “enough is enough.”

Ms Haley said the incremental sanctions approach of the 15-member council to North Korea since 2006 had not worked and she described North Korean leader Kim Jong Un as “begging for war.”

“Despite our efforts the North Korea nuclear program is more advanced and more dangerous than ever,” Ms Haley told the council. ”

“War is never something the United States wants. We don’t want it now. But our country’s patience is not unlimited.”

“When a rogue regime has a nuclear weapon and an ICBM pointed at you, you do not take steps to lower your guard. No one would do that. We certainly won’t,” she declared.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres “counts on the Security Council to remain united and take appropriate action”, his political affairs chief, Jeffrey Feltman, said.

Mr Feltman warned the Security Council that “as tensions rise, so does the risk of misunderstanding, miscalculation and escalation.”

“The latest serious developments require a comprehensive response in order to break the cycle of provocations from (North Korea). Such a response must include wise and bold diplomacy to be effective,” Mr Feltman told the council.

The United States, Britain, France, Japan and South Korea requested the urgent meeting after North Korea detonated what it described as a hydrogen bomb designed for a long-range missile.

South Korea’s defense ministry warned on Monday that Pyongyang may be preparing another missile launch after two tests in July of intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) that apparently brought the US mainland into range.

Ms Haley declared that the “time for half measures is over,” suggesting the council must significantly ratchet up the pressure with biting sanctions to be decided in a new resolution.

The US ambassador did not spell out what measures Washington would support, but diplomats have indicated that an oil embargo would have a crippling effect on the North Korean economy.
