'China must do more to counter North Korea or the US will take things “into our own hands," America’s Ambassador to the UN has said.
Nikky Haley told Fox News Sunday that Beijing and the rest of the international community are following through with sanctions against Pyongyang for developing its nuclear weapons programme. She then commended Washington for leading the charge.
“But to be clear, China can do more,” Haley said. “And we're putting as much pressure on them as we can. The last time they completely cut off the oil, North Korea came to the table. And so we've told China they've got to do more. If they don't do more, we're going to take it into our own hands and then we'll start to deal with secondary sanctions.”
Haley explained that Trump and China’s President Xi Jinping have a “very good relationship,” but Trump “is really starting to put the pressure on, saying that they’ve got to do more.”
“Now it’s time for China to respond,” she said.
Later in the interview, Haley was asked about her “sometimes undiplomatic talk for a diplomat,” in reference to her promise that North Korea would be “utterly destroyed,” in a war.'
