Haley: 'Plenty' of military options available for dealing with North Korea

Security Adviser H.R. McMaster

Trump condemned Friday's test-launch of what North Korea claimed was an intermediate-range Hwasong-12, saying Kim's leadership "has once again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors and for the entire world community". Vice President Pence and U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will join Trump in the U.S. delegation. "It's about action", Haley told reporters Friday in the White House press briefing room. She acknowledged that foreign leaders are curious about how the unpredictable USA president will maneuver.

BENNETT: And there is no shortage of crises, says Haley. "And I think that he will make quite an impact".

Trump's United Nations envoy called North Korea "reckless".

The White House said on Friday (Sept 15) that President Donald Trump will meet the leaders of Japan and South Korea in NY next week to discuss the "urgent" threat posed by North Korea and dismissed claims there was no military option to dealing with Pyongyang.

Tensions have risen sharply with both nations since Trump took office and assumed a more confrontational posture than his predecessor, Barack Obama. Haley says she's read a draft of the speech. "For a number of leaders, this is going to be their first chance to see him, to judge him, to try to get on his good side". For the first time, he will attend the annual United Nations General Assembly in NY, which brings together leaders of the 193 member nations for a week of meetings and speeches. On Monday, the president will participate in a special gathering at the United Nations that will offer proposals on how to streamline the U.N.'s budget, Politico reported.

"I personally think he slaps the right people, he hugs the right people, and he comes out with the USA being very strong in the end", said Haley, who has seen a draft of Trump's address. Two key foreign leaders will not be on hand: Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Canyon Bridge Capital Partners' planned $1.3 billion acquisition of Lattice Semiconductor Corp was one of the largest attempted by a Chinese-backed firm in the United States microchip sector and was the first announced deal for the buyout fund, which launched past year with a focus on technology investment.

McMaster said that reform of the U.N.is very much on the table at the meeting in general, with focus on ideas for making the notoriously inefficient organization, whose biennial core budget is $5.4 billion, more streamlined.

Trump also plans a lunch with the leaders of South Korea and Japan, he said.

McMaster said North Korea's recent launch demonstrates that it is one of the world's most urgent and unsafe security problems, he added.

McMaster said new sanctions on North Korea are just going into effect and need to be given a chance to work.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said inside an airplane hanger, surrounded by USA airmen and with a looming stealth bomber positioned behind him.

WASHINGTON (AP) - How has North Korea responded in the five weeks since President Donald Trump threated Pyongyang with "fire and fury?"

Champions of the Iran nuclear deal were reassured when Trump twice acted to certify Iranian compliance.

Lisa Collins, a fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, said other nations will be watching the United States at the U.N. next week to determine Trump's next steps.

Trump faces an October 15 deadline to say whether Iran is complying with terms of the deal and whether he considers the agreement to be in the USA national interest. But that will depend on whether he learns to navigate the institution. "And partly it's the world's most tedious cocktail party".
