Nikki Haley told the Security Council about the severity of the issue, " We are not looking for war. The North Korean regime has not yet passed the point of no-return."
She also added, " 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. If North Korea continues its dangerous path, we will continue with further pressure. The choice is theirs"
