UN Ambassador Haley: US to Continue Pursuing Diplomatic Path With North Korea

Trump, in his maiden speech at the UN General Assembly on Tuesday, issued a fiery warning after North Korea tested its sixth and largest nuclear bomb and defied new sanctions by launching its longest-ever missile flight over Japan.

If the USA is "forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy North Korea".

Addressing the General Assembly is a milestone moment for any president, but one particularly significant for Trump, a relative newcomer to foreign policy who has at times rattled the global community with his unpredictability.

"President Trump has handed the North Koreans the soundbite of the century", said Marcus Noland of the Peterson Institute for International Economics and one of the authors of its "North Korea: Witness to Transformation" blog.

Merkel has called for a diplomatic solution to curb North Korea's armament programme, with the 2015 Iran deal as a possible template.

The reactions from Zimbabwe delegates occurred during a part in Trump's speech where he discussed the USA bearing an "unfair cost burden".

Trump also said the Iranian government is an "economically depleted rogue state" whose chief export is violence. He said one presidential speech will have little or no effect on America's reputation in the world, since most nations base their views of the United States on policies, which tend to transcend administrations, not on the views or actions of any individual president.

At first, Trump did not name the North Korean leader, using a nickname instead.

Furthermore, Trump's "demonizing" of Kim personally would inflame the situation, she said.

In fact, the deal imposes strict limits and rigorous inspections on Iran's nuclear facilities in return for the lifting of worldwide economic sanctions. He accused Tehran of squandering Iran's wealth by supporting Syrian President Bashar Assad, Lebanon's Hezbollah militia and Yemen's Houthi rebel group. That may offer some reassurance to China and Russian Federation, which have urged the U.S.to tone down its rhetoric and restart dialogue with North Korea.

In return Trump has talked at length about punishing Kim Jong-un's regime and suggesting the days of diplomacy may be over.

Later in Tuesday's speech, Trump also raised the prospect of a second nuclear conflict - between the U.S. and Iran.

The administration must decide in mid-October whether it will certify that Iran is still in compliance with the agreement.

"This will reinforce the leadership's position that the United States is hostile to North Korea", said Jung H. Pak, chair of Korea studies at the Brookings Institution. He also decried the "disastrous rule" of Venezuela's Nicolas Maduro and urged the U.N.to step in. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, a Trump ally, wrote on Twitter, "In over 30 years in my experience with the United Nations, I never heard a bolder or more courageous speech". "We have to make sure all options are under development to ensure that this regime can not threaten the world with a nuclear weapon".

"The American empire wants to step on all countries that want to advance, but we will not surrender", said Yirialdy Echandia, a 37-year-old student.
