Nikki Haley Blasts Russia Over North Korea

The U.N. ambassador said that all nations should be worried about North Korea’s aggressive posturing.

The U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, blasted Russia over Moscow’s scolding of the United States on the subject of North Korea at a press conference on Tuesday.

Russian President Vladimir Putin admonished the United States for “intimidating” North Korea following the nation’s ballistic missile test that landed 60 miles south of the Russian city of Vladivostok. The city houses Russia’s Pacific Fleet.

“What about North Korea intimidating us?” Haley asked.

“These tests coming from [North Korea], they’re intimidating the entire international community.”

Haley said that there is “no reason” for North Korea to be taking such provocative actions.

“Russia itself should be concerned, because that ballistic missile test was a signal to South Korea for their new elections. It was a signal to Russia in how close it got. It was a signal to Japan, being in the region. And it was a signal to us,” Haley said.

“You have to choose. You have to pick a side,” she said to Russia.
