North Korea 'preparing for missile strike' – US ambassador warns United Nations
Haley is known for not mincing words and took yet another bold stance against the global governing body Tuesday, with specific references to the recent protests in Iran. They are virtually in every city in Iran. Let go of Syria; think of us.
She said: "This is the precise picture of a long opressed people rising up against their dictators".
"Nor can Moon abandon the US-led global pressure campaign against North Korea's nuclear and missile development", Snyder said.
"It takes great bravery for the Iranian people to use the power of their voice against their government, especially when their government has a long history of murdering its own people who dare to speak the truth", Haley said.
"North Korea can talk with anyone they want, but the U.S.is not going to recognize it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have", she said. The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran. "Those are the words of the courageous people of Iran".
Meanwhile in New York UN Ambassador Nikki Haley praised the courage of Iranian demonstrators and said protests across the country were spontaneous, not driven by outside forces.

The head of Iran's Tehran Revolutionary Court further warned that protesters who rallied against the government after the second day of demonstrations may face "serious penalties".
Obama was initially reluctant to speak forcefully in favor of the demonstrations for fear the Iranian regime would undermine the grass-roots nature of the protests. In her remarks, Haley wasted no time criticizing the regime and siding with the protesters against their oppressors.
"We must not be silent".
"We hope that the South and North can sit face to face and discuss the participation of the North Korean delegation at the Pyeongchang Games, as well as other issues of mutual interest for the improvement of inter-Korean ties", Cho told reporters in Seoul, according to Yonhap news agency.
She said Pakistan plays a "double game" by cooperating with the US while harboring terror groups that operate in neighboring Afghanistan.
