Despite Criticism Of UN, Trump Set To Attend Meeting Of World Leaders

National security advisor H.R. Mc Master speaks to reporters in the White House briefing room in Washington

Mattis has "plenty of options" on North Korea, Nikki Haley says in White House briefing -- live updates

In a briefing to reporters at the White House Friday, Trump's national security adviser H.R. McMaster said that Iran and North Korea will be the top of the agenda.

Both of North Korea's patron nations insist that Pyongyang has legitimate grievances that should be settled through negotiations with the US and South Korea. "Now, it's not what we would prefer to do", McMaster said.

Haley repeatedly said the latest package of North Korea sanctions unanimously passed by the Security Council is significant, calling it a "massive sanctions package".

The launch is the second to flyover Japan in less than a month, and the first since North Korea's sixth nuclear test and new United Nations sanctions on the country. "This includes the regime of North Korea, which has one again shown its utter contempt for its neighbors, and the entire world community". Haley confirmed that she has read a draft of the speech.

Trump also plans a lunch with the leaders of South Korea and Japan, he said.

The president will highlight the United Nations reform package, being led by the secretary general to streamline processes and the budget, to make the United Nations more effective, said Haley. More fundamentally, the USA decision to join any intergovernmental organization is not an abdication of sovereignty, but indeed its expression.

The worry is less about a full-blown attack from the North on its neighbours (an unlikely possibility given that Kim is not suicidal) and more the prospect of low-level provocations - for example, the shelling by the North of contested border territories near the Northern Limit Line between North and South Korea, or use of cyber attacks to disrupt USA and allied command and control operations.

Earlier this week, the UN Security Council agreed to tighten sanctions on North Korea, banning its textile exports and capping fuel supplies.

Friends, diplomats and foreign policy experts will be watching Trump for any signs that globalists in his White House have gained traction since the departure of nationalist champions such as former chief strategist Steve Bannon.

Trump heads to the U.N. General Assembly meeting next week with the same suitcase of bad options as his predecessors.

"In her own way she spells out the "America First" agenda, but she has not been hostile to the United Nations", he said. That, she added, "is just the beginning of what we can do". "For those who've been commenting about the lack of a military option, there is a military option".

"We basically have the President headlining a United Nations reform effort, which would really support the Secretary-General".

"I don't think that he'll stray too much outside of the boundaries of that", Collins said. "So whether some believe it's big or small, I think what the President is saying is this is just the beginning of what we can do", Haley said, highlighting the fact that the new sanctions were cleared by a 15-0 record, with China and Russian Federation being on board with the stiff measure.
