NEW YORK (ALBOENEWS) — United States’ UN Ambassador Nikki Haley says North Korea is “begging for war” during an emergency session of the United Nations Security Council Monday, according to CBS News.
Haley says the White House wants to find a diplomatic solution to North Korea’s nuclear test explosions over the holiday weekend. But the ambassador warns, “Our country’s patience is not unlimited.”
South Korea’s Defense Ministry says the North appears to be planning another missile launch, possibly an intercontinental ballistic missile. South Korea fired missiles of its own into the ocean Monday. The country also says it will deploy four launchers of the U.S. THAAD missile defense system.
