Haley: US Might Look at Sanctions on Countries Aiding North Korea

17 Mai 2017

The council on Monday unanimously condemned North Korea's latest missile test and warned of new sanctions.

In a statement on Monday, the 15-member council demanded that Pyongyang conduct no further ballistic missile tests.

"The conversations that I have had. with my counterpart and in dealing with Beijing is that if (North Korea) did something else and if it looked to be long range, which this does, and if it looks like it is proactively leaning toward an ICBM, which it does, then we would take action", Haley said.

North Korea said the missile it had tested on Sunday was a "newly developed ballistic rocket" capable of carrying a large nuclear warhead. Both are in defiance of United Nations sanctions.

Flanked by ambassadors from Japan and South Korea, Ms Haley reiterated the U.S. position that it is willing to engage in talks with Mr Kim's regime if it abandons its nuclear aspirations. "Our credibility and more importantly our collective security are directly at stake here".

On the respected 38 North website, aerospace engineering specialist John Schilling said it appeared to be an intermediate-range ballistic missile that could "reliably strike the United States base at Guam" in the Pacific, 3,400 kilometres away.

The minister added that Seoul could carry out an preemptive strike on North Korea if there were clear signs the North was ready to attack the country.

"We have worked well with China", Haley said.

"We confirmed with the USA military that the THAAD radar deployed in Seongju County detected Sunday's missile launch".

The United States has been discussing possible new U.N. sanctions with Pyongyang's ally and neighbor China since a failed missile test about two weeks ago.

But Moon slammed the latest launch as a "reckless provocation" and said dialogue would be possible "only if the North changes its attitude".

More cyberattacks could be in the pipeline after the global havoc caused by the Wannacry ransomware, a South Korean cybersecurity expert warned today as fingers pointed at the North.
