>> US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted North Korea's latest ballistic missile launch Sunday saying it stemmed from leader Kim Jong-un's state of paranoia. In an interview with ABC News, Haley adding quote, I think this was a message to South Korea after the election and so what we're going to do is continue to tighten the screws.
He feels it. He absolutely feels it and we're going to continue, whether it's sanctions, whether it's press statements, anything we have to do. President Trump at the beginning of the month said he would be quote, honored to meet with the North Korean leader. But with the recent incident by Pyongyang, Hailey said, quote, having a missile test is not the way to sit down with the President.
Because he's absolutely not going to do it. North Korea on Sunday fired off a ballistic missile that landed in the sea between North Korea and Japan, also, just 60 miles from Russia. The missile flew 430 miles and reached an altitude of more than 1,200 miles according to officials in South Korea and Japan.
North Korea is widely believed to be developing an intercontinental missile tipped with a nuclear weapon that is capable of reaching the United States. Trump has vowed not to let that happen.
