US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley stated that the sanctions approved by the UN Security Council «are by far the strongest measures ever imposed on North Korea», speaking at the UN Security Council meeting at the UN headquarters, in New York, on Monday. According to Haley the sanctions, «give us a much better chance to halt the regime's ability to fuel and finance its nuclear and... Еще missile programmes.» She termed the UN Security Council meeting as an attempt «to take the future of the North Korean nuclear programme out of the hands of its outlaw regime». «We are not looking for war. The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no return. If it agrees to stop its nuclear program, it can reclaim its future. If it proves it can live in peace, the world will live in peace with it,» concluded US Ambassador.
