Nikki Haley: North Korea Could Perform New Missile Test

Nikki Haley, U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, said the U.S. government has received reports that North Korea might conduct another missile test, Reuters reported Tuesday.

Haley told reporters that tighter measures must be employed against North Korea if it launches a new missile.

She added that the U.S. government would not recognize talks between South and North Korea if they do not involve efforts to stop the nuclear weapons programs of the latter country.

“North Korea can talk to anyone they want, but the U.S. is not going to recognize it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have,” Haley noted.

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un said in a speech on Monday that he is open to dialogue with South Korea, to which the latter responded with an offer for talks on Jan.9.
