Haley on North Korea: We’ll use military forces if we must

U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said on Wednesday that the U.S. is prepared to defend itself from the North Korean threat.

Her comments came as the UN Security Council met to debate the crisis with North Korea, in the wake of North Korea’s launch of an intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM).

“The United States is prepared to use the full range of our capabilities to defend ourselves and our allies,” Haley said, in comments quoted by CBS News.

“One of our capabilities lies with our considerable military forces. We will use them if we must, but we prefer not to have to go in that direction,” she stressed.

Haley called the missile test a “destabilizing escalation,” and said North Korea’s actions are “quickly closing off the possibility of a diplomatic solution.”
