United Nations Security Council condemns highly provocative North Korea missile launch

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders speaks with reporters at the White House

She said they were continuing to work on reform at the United Nations and said that finally the body is taking action on certain issues. And for those who have said and been commenting on the lack of a military option - there is a military option.

"In the words of North Korea, we have strangled their economic situation at this point".

"So having said that, I have no problem kicking it to General Mattis because I think he has plenty of options", Haley said at the White House briefing, where she and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster previewed USA efforts at the U.N. General Assembly next week.

During the race, Ricciardo stormed through the field, making up 11 positions on the way to a sensational fourth place finish. Ticket sales fell a year ago to around 73,000 for each of the three days of the race weekend.

President Trump's top security advisor says the United States is approaching the end of the road for dealing with North Korea using sanctions and diplomacy.

The United Nations reacted strongly after North Korea tested a weapon analysts say has the explosive power of 250 kilotons of TNT, passing the new sanctions on September 11.

The president will meet with South Korean President Moon Jae-in and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in NY next Thursday, McMaster said.

DREAM TEAM POINTS Watford 0 Man City 6
Spanish newspaper Mundo Deportivo have started picking their own Champions League of the Week, and Stones has made his way in. The hat-trick from Aguero left the Spaniard claiming that his player should already be widely-known as a Man City legend.

In a statement, the Security Council said the launch was carried out just three weeks after a first missile overflew Japan and less than two weeks after Pyongyang's sixth and biggest nuclear test.

In New York, the U.N. Security Council unanimously condemned the launch and called it a "highly provocative" act. The new sanctions, coupled with those before them, now ban over 90 percent of North Korea's publicly reported 2016 exports - including coal, textiles, iron and seafood, but not revenues from overseas workers. "... I have no trouble kicking it to [Defense Secretary] Gen. [Jim] Mattis, because I think he has plenty of options".
