US: North Korea Begging for War – North Korea has conducted 6 weapons tests, and the latest is a test of hydrogen bombs using intercontinental ballistic missiles on September 3, 2017. The effect of this experiment is the occurrence of a shock of 6.3 on the Richter scale in North Korea.
This hydrogen bomb is predicted to be stronger than the atomic bomb dropped by the United States in Hirosima and Nagasaki in World War II.
US: North Korea Begging for War
Nikki Haley, former South Carolina governor who is currently the US ambassador for the UN said, North Korea “begging for war”, and urged the UN Security Council to impose sanctions on North Korea.
“The time has come to finish all the diplomatic means before it’s too late, so far noting that an approach of incremental sanctions since 2006 had not worked.” Haley said as quoted by The Guardian on Tuesday (September 5,2017)
In addition, Haley said, “The threat of its missile and nuclear use suggests that it begs for war, war is not something the United States wants, we do not want it now, but our country’s patience has its limits, we will defend our allies and territories.”
Haley further explained that it will propose new sanctions for North Korea in this week. The sanctions will target countries that trade with North Korea.
Haley explained that “the US will see every country that does business with North Korea as a country that provides assistance for North Korea’s reckless and dangerous nuclear ambitions, and only the strongest sanctions will allow us to resolve this issue through diplomacy”.
Haley’s remarks surfaced when almost at the same time President Donald Trump spoke over the phone with South Korean President Moon Jae-in. On the occasion, the two leaders spoke for about 40 minutes and reached agreement that the September 3 nuclear test of North Korea was “an unprecedented serious provocation”.
On the same occasion, Trump reaffirmed his support for South Korea’s defense. The two leaders also underlined that agreeing to push the UN Security Council impose tougher sanctions on North Korea.
In Moscow, the Kremlin announced that President Moon Jae-in also called President Vladimir Putin. Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that “It is very easy to declare ‘war’ for countries outside the region, but for those within a region should be wiser in making decisions”.
