US "done talking about North Korea"

Some diplomats had expected the United States, Japan and South Korea to ask for the 15-member U.N. Security Council to meet on Monday over the test. Haley said on Sunday that the United States saw "no point in having an emergency session if it produces nothing of effect".

Any new U.N. Security Council resolution "that does not significantly increase the worldwide pressure on North Korea is of no value", Haley said, adding that Japan and South Korea also needed to do more.

She argued that holding a meeting is worse than doing nothing if it would only send the message to North Korean leader Kim Jong-un that the global community is unwilling to seriously challenge him. Though Haley did not explicitly echo the president's belief that China "could easily solve" the issue of North Korea, her statement did urge China to take immediate action.

The United States and Russian Federation have waged rival campaigns at the Security Council over the type of ballistic missile fired by North Korea on July 4.

The United States has been in talks with North Korean ally China on a draft U.N. Security Council resolution to impose stronger sanctions on North Korea. Kim said the second flight test of an ICBM proved that his country can strike the US mainland.

US Finally Ends Laptop Ban Due To 'Enhanced Security Measures In Place'
The threat has eased somewhat, the intelligence official said, in part due to the implementation of enhanced security measures . On Thursday, the Department of Homeland Security lifted laptop bans on flights to the United States.

Haley had said last week her team was "constantly in touch with China and I can say that things are moving" toward a proposed new UN Security Council resolution.

On Friday night, North Korea conducted a ballistic missile test that landed off the coast of Japan, which the country's state-run media KCNA declared was "meant to send a stern warning to the US making senseless remarks".

A top United States general has called North Korea "the most urgent threat to regional stability" following the rogue regime's second ICBM test. We will no longer allow this to continue.

Nikki Haley (right) said she is "done talking" about North Korea in a broken English tweet on Sunday. He has not articulated a US military response to North Korea's growing threats, but Congress last week approved a bill ordering sanctions on North Korea, as well as Iran and Russian Federation.

That would leave North Korea only the technical challenge of miniaturizing a nuclear warhead that could withstand reentry in order to back leader Kim Jong Un's incessant nuclear threats against the US.
