Nikki Haley Asks Nations to ‘Cut Off All Ties to North Korea,’ and Trump Gets Tough on China

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley asked all nations to “cut off all ties to North Korea” on Wednesday, following the most threatening missile test yet from the rogue east Asian nation.

According to Politico:

The Trump administration called for [an emergency] session [of the UN Security Council] after the Pentagon announced that Pyongyang had conducted its first test of an intercontinental ballistic missile in over two months.

Haley further called for all countries to “sever diplomatic relations with North Korea and limit military, scientific technical and commercial cooperation.” The ambassador, who has repeatedly called for U.N. allies to take a tougher stance against the government of Kim Jong Un, said all nations should also seize all imports and exports with the country and expel North Korean workers.

The Trump adminisration is also trying to increase pressure on China, using the president’s favorite bully pulpit: Twitter.

The president tweeted on Thursday morning that China is having “no impact on Little Rocket Man.” However, he also seemed to praise China (and Russia) for condemning the latest missile launch.

As reported on Tuesday, North Korea conducted its first missile test in two months this week. The missile is capable of reaching anywhere in the world.
