U.S. ambassdor to UN says “all options are on the table” for DPRK


UNITED NATIONS, March 8 (Xinhua) — U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley told reporters Wednesday that “all options are on the table” for the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK) after emergency closed consultations of the Security Council on the DPRK.

The United States was revaluating how it must deal with the DPRK after the country’s repeated missile tests, she said, adding that the U.S. has to see “some sort of positive action” from the DPRK before it can take Kim Jong Un’s regime seriously and discuss ways to reduce tensions on the Korean peninsula.

Immediately following the Security Council consultations on DPRK’s recent missile launches on Wednesday morning, Haley joined a joint stakeout with Ambassador Koro Bessho, Permanent Representative of Japan to the UN, and Ambassador Cho Tae-yul, Permanent Representative of the Republic of Korea to the UN.
