US ‘Not Looking for Fight’ With North Korea: Nikki Haley


US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Washington is not looking to get into a fight with North Korea unless Pyongyang sparks one. She told reporters yesterday that North Korea needs to realize that it should not give a reason to the United States for a fight and US also not wants a reason to fight with North Korea.

Earlier, US Vice President Mike Pence said during a joint press conference with Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso that the United States will continue to work with its allies to address the gravest threat to the region emanating from North Korea.

The statement was made amid an escalation of tensions on the Korean peninsula with the South Korea and US military reporting April 16th that they had witnessed what they believe to be a failed missile test by Pyongyang which followed a number of missile launches and nuclear tests considered to be in violation with the UN Security Council resolution.
