In response to the US ambassador Nikki Haley’s speech at UN early in the week, North Korean Central News Agency which is run by the government, called her a “prostitute” who is a “blind fool”.
“She is crazily swishing her skirt, playing the flagship role in Trump administration’s hideous sanctions and pressure racket,” said the Korean news agency.
“Nikki should be careful with her tongue though she might be a blind fool. The US administration will have to pay a dear price for her tongue-lashing.”
The denunciation comes after Ms Haley’s speech at a United Nations Security Council meeting. In the meeting, she condemned North Korea for “begging for war” in the wake of the North’s sixth nuclear test news. By saying so, the US ambassador pressed the council to strengthen the sanctions against the dictator country.
“Enough is enough. We have taken an incremental approach, and despite the best of intentions, it has not worked,” Ms Haley said at UN.
United States is pressing the UN Security Council to impose an oil embargo on North Korea. US is also pushing for sanctions against the country’s textile exports and the hiring of North Korean workers.
China, which is North Korea’s only ally, also believes that the UN must confront the secretive country.
The US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has on the other hand encouraged diplomacy over the heated matter of North Korea’s nuclear tests. US President Donald Trump has also taken on a less threatening tone by saying the war with North Korea could be averted.
On September 9, which is the North Korea’s founding anniversary, the country is expected to test an even larger nuclear bomb, since it’s last nuclear test was on this day last year.
