U.S. warns it 'will never accept' a nuclear North Korea

The US envoy to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has distanced the Trump administration from proposed contacts between North and South Korea, saying it would not take any talks seriously if Pyongyang did not abandon its nuclear arsenal. "The UN must speak out". In 2009, the Green Revolution saw thousands of protesters in Iran taking to the streets to contest the recent reelection of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. "The freedoms that are enshrined in the United Nations charter are under attack in Iran".

At least 21 people have died across Iran as protesters have clashed with police, which Haley's boss, President Donald Trump, said shows, "The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism". The demonstrations began Thursday, CBS News correspondent Elizabeth Palmer reports, with a single demonstration in the eastern Iranian city of Mashhad, over economic hardship, and a dramatic jump in food prices in particular.

Haley, in a letter to dozens of United Nations states last month, warned that Trump had asked her to "report back on those countries who voted against us".

The State Department has been communicating with protesters through their Farsi-language social media accounts, posting statements of support from U.S. and world leaders, despite the Iranian government's decision to block access to some websites.

Russian Federation could be helping North Korea build deadly bombs that coud start World War 3 , chilling documents reveal. If the North Koreans conduct an additional test of a nuclear bomb - their seventh - "I would say 70 percent", he said.

"The long-repressed Iranian people are now finding their voice", she said.

Haley said the United States would not take talks seriously if they did not take steps toward banning North Korea's nuclear weapons. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", Nikki Haley told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters. The regime is also shutting down schools in response to the protests. But Obama's critics say his hesitancy only emboldened the Iranian regime. Let them vote against us. "We need to also organize an worldwide response". "We don't care", Trump told reporters at the White House.

Still, a senior administration official said United States officials are taking inventory of ways they can be supportive of the demonstrations and come up with "creative" ideas.
