North Korea: US Urges all Nations to Cut Ties

Nikki Haley, the US envoy spoke about the nuclear threats of North Korea at the UN Security Council. She conveyed the message that the President wants his Chinese counterpart to cut off oil supplies to Pyongyang. She said that the US did not seek conflict but that North Korea’s regime would be “utterly destroyed” if war broke out.

The warning came after Pyongyang tested its first missile in two months. North Korea said the missile fired on Wednesday, which it said reached an altitude of about 4,475km (2,780 miles) – more than 10 times the height of the International Space Station – carried a warhead capable of re-entering the Earth’s atmosphere.

There have been serious doubts about N. Korea’s ability to master such technology by the experts in the similar field. The claim has not been proven yet. North Korea’s leader Kim Jong-un called the launch “impeccable” and a “breakthrough”.

The international community has condemned the test, which is one of several this year. The UN Security Council called an emergency meeting. Ms. Haley warned that “continued acts of aggression” were only serving to further destabilize the region.

Russia’s UN ambassador Vassily Nebenzia has asked the US to not carry out the planned military exercises with South Korea planned for December as it would “inflame an already explosive situation”. She also wants North Korea to stop its missile and nuclear tests.

Washington denied China’s proposal to halt the US military exercises in exchange for halting of the nuclear tests by the North Koreans.

Cutting the Oil Lifeline

“We need China to do more,” Ms. Haley said on Wednesday. “President Trump called President Xi this morning and told him that we’ve come to the point where China must cut off the oil for North Korea. “We know the main driver of its nuclear production is oil,” she said. “The major supplier of that oil is China.”
