North Korea 'preparing for missile strike' - USA ambassador warns United Nations

  • Kim made the shocking warning in his New Year address

U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley addressed the deadly protests in Iran and the North Korea nuclear threat on Tuesday at the United Nations. She said the United States would be seeking emergency sessions of the UN Security Council and the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Commission in the coming days. All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause.

State-run media outlet IRIB reported that Iranian officials had temporarily restricted access to social media apps Instagram and Telegram, which have been used by Iranians to share news about the protests.

"What prevents the enemies and their hostile actions is the spirit of courage, self-sacrifice and faith among the people". "We won't take any of the talks seriously if they don't do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea", Haley said.

Haley said "nowhere is the urgency of peace, security, and freedom being more tested than in Iran", noting that "citizens are taking to the streets to protest the oppression of their own government".

The State Department has been communicating with protesters through their Farsi-language social media accounts, posting statements of support from U.S. and world leaders, despite the Iranian government's decision to block access to some websites.

Rajinikanth to end suspense, spell out political stand today
The superstar of Tamil cinema has kept his fans, fellow actors and political commentators on tenterhooks for several months now. So, I will announce my political stance on 31 December. "Had I not known its dynamics, I would have said okay", he said.

"As we hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test, I hope that does not happen, but if it does we must bring even more measures to bear on the North Korean regime", Haley said.

Haley said the United States would not take talks seriously if they did not take steps toward banning North Korea's nuclear weapons. "We want to help amplify the voices of the Iranian people".

The demonstrations in Iran, which have erupted against a backdrop of rising food and gasoline prices, began Thursday in the northeastern city of Mashhad before spreading to other cities. "We expect far more cooperation from Pakistan in the fight against terrorism".

According to Haley, US President Donald Trump "doesn't want to give any additional funding until the Palestinians agree to come back to the negotiation table". But Obama's critics say his hesitancy only emboldened the Iranian regime. Let go of Syria; think of us. "We need to also organize an global response".

"North Korea can talk with anyone they want, but the U.S. is not going to recognise it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have. We don't care", Trump told reporters at the White House.
