Washington’s UN: North Korea’s leader a failed and “paranoid”

Niki Hailey, the United States ambassador to the United Nations, has not ruled out a strike against North Korea if Pyongyang tests another nuclear test.

In several television interviews on Monday, Hailie hailed China’s participation in trying to pressure North Korea to stop the missile test, criticizing its leader Kim Young-un as “unstable” and suffering from paranoia.

“We will not do anything unless we are given a reason to do something,” Hailie said in televised remarks, such as attacking a US military base or using an intercontinental ballistic missile.

Asked what would happen if North Korea tested another missile or a nuclear device, Hailie told the BBC: “I think then the president will intervene and decide what will happen,” according to the Associated Press.
