United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley warned that North Korea’s recent actions are “quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution.”
In a speech at the United Nations Wednesday, the former South Carolina governor said that the United States is prepared to use “our considerable military forces” as it responds to North Korea’s recent testing of a intercontinental ballistic missile.
“Time is short. Action is required. The world is on notice,” she said. “If we act together, we can still prevent a catastrophe and we can rid the world of a grave threat. If we fail to act in a serious way, there will be a different response.”
