According to U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Niki Haley, Washington will not seek action by the UN following the recent North Korean missile test and said the period of negotiation is over. A Pyongyang long-range missile test that could hit major U.S. cities has sparked widespread criticism from the U.S. and its allies and requires a new reflection on the tactics over Pyongyang.

UN sanctions on North Korea

North Korea is already the subject of a number of Security Council resolutions that forcefully violate, said Hayley on Sunday, a seemingly embarrassing expectation - Haley, who suggests that the North Korean crisis cannot be resolved diplomatically by the Security Council.

Analysts argue that Hailey's comment undermines the Security Council, which heads the sanctions that are trying to curb North Korea's nuclear and missile program. Rather, Haley urged China and said she had to decide if she was willing to take this vital step to provoke Pyongyang. Hailey's comments repeated President Donald Trump on Saturday, who said he was 'very disappointed by China.

Trump blames past US presidents for not taking action

Trump said his predecessors were foolish for allowing Beijing to receive hundreds of billions of dollars annually but did nothing for the U.S. in convincing North Korea to abandon its missile program.

On Monday, the Chinese Foreign Affairs Ministry’ spokesman Geng Shuang failed to address Trump’s concerns but repeated Beijing's long-standing position on the North Korean nuclear program, restating China’s commitment to promoting a peaceful resolution to the nuclear tension.

Vice President Mike Pence said all the options were at the table when it comes to North Korea after the U.S. sent two B-1 bombers from Guam to a 10-hour setting along the Korean Peninsula. Friday's North Korea test was considered to be more advanced than the Intercontinental Ballistic Missile (ICBM) launched on July 4, and represents a significant step forward from a country that was not considered capable of presenting a major ICBM program.
