  • For Trump and his team, a “time to be serious” at United Nations debut

"We wanted to be responsible and go through all diplomatic means to get their attention first, if that doesn't work, [Secretary of Defense] General Mattis will take care of it", Haley told CNN, while Tillerson stated to CBS that if U.S. "diplomatic efforts fail though, our military option will be the only one left".

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley said the sanctions need time to work and maintained hope that Pyongyang would return to the negotiating table.

North Korea's nuclear and missile tests will be in the spotlight, with foreign ministers set to discuss enforcing sanctions against Pyongyang during a Security Council meeting on nonproliferation on Thursday. The United States is the single largest funder of the U.N., contributing 22 percent of the U.N. budget.

Two days after the UN Security Council unanimously adopted a US-draft resolution slapping new sanctions on North Korea, the pariah nation for the second time in less than three weeks fired a second missile over northern Japan.

Liverpool's Klopp: "We were dominant" but draw "our fault"
Jurgen Klopp says each of his Liverpool defenders made a mistake for Burnley's goal in their 1-1 draw. He said, "Result-wise, you are right, but honestly, as a person I'm not like this".

"If North Korea keeps on with this reckless behavior, if the United States has to defend itself or defend its allies in any way, North Korea will be destroyed". And none of us want that. We don't want war. "We are trying every other possibility that we have".

The 15-nation council condemned Friday's missile test in an emergency session and called on all countries to "fully, comprehensively and immediately" implement all U.N. sanctions. "It's not a friend even to the United States of America, where, as you know, it has its home", Trump had said during his presidential campaign past year.

Haley says President Donald Trump's "fire and fury" threat against North Korea wasn't an empty threat. 'Asked him how Rocket Man [Kim Jong-un] is doing. And we, as a country that has a common border with North Korea, are not into jokes.

The US said it conducted the new military exercise with the South in response to the North's recent missile and nuclear tests, said the source.

Second man held over Parsons Green bombing
London police said their investigation into Friday's attack is being supported by MI-5, Britain's domestic intelligence agency. A second man has been arrested by detectives investigating the terrorist attack at Parsons Green station on Friday.

Heading to NY on the eve of the first United Nations session during his presidency, Trump appeared to mock North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un in a tweet, apparently referring to him as "Rocket Man" and suggesting sanctions are already working.

Haley and Feinstein spoke on CNN's "State of the Union," McMaster appeared on ABC's "This Week" and "Fox News Sunday" and Tillerson was on CBS' "Face the Nation".

Speaking at Joint Base Andrews, the Air Force installation outside Washington on Friday, Trump declared that American military options were robust should they be required to respond to threats from Pyongyang.

Options for North Korea are 'effective and overwhelming'
North Korea yesterday fired an intermediate range ballistic missile over Japan and into the Pacific Ocean. That missile flew more than 2,700 kilometers at a maximum altitude of about 550 kilometers.
