United Nations Security Council condemns highly provocative North Korea missile launch

Bulgaria The White House Demanded the Dismissal of a Journalist who Criticized Trump on Twitter

The UN Security Council imposed the "strongest sanctions ever" on North Korea Monday, putting intense pressure on the regime.

National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster joined Haley in speaking to the White House press Friday in the aftermath of North Korea firing a ballistic missile over Japan, the latest in a series of provocative acts by the rogue country. McMaster said the USA has "run out of road". He calls on all nations to enforce them and do everything they can to address the threat and prevent war.

Those options are "not only effective but overwhelming", Trump added for his part, after reviewing a military base near Washington.

McMaster stressed Friday that the U.S.is still trying to resolve the conflict diplomaticcaly.

The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country. "As Ambassador Haley said before, we've been kicking the can down the road and we're out of road". "The members of the Security Council strongly condemned these launches, condemned further North Korea for its outrageous actions, and demanded that North Korea immediately cease all such actions", the Security Council said in a statement after an emergency meeting.

"After seeing your capabilities and commitment here today, I am more confident than ever that our options in addressing this threat are both effective and overwhelming", Trump said inside an airplane hangar, surrounded by United States airmen and with a looming stealth bomber positioned behind him.

"I have no problem with kicking it to General Mattis because I think he has plenty of options", Haley said.

The increasing levels of sanctions are expected to cut off 90 percent of North Korea's trade.
