  • US dismisses North South Korea talks as'band-aid

"North Korea can talk to anyone they want, but the U.S.is not going to recognize it or acknowledge it until they agree to ban the nuclear weapons that they have", she said.

She said: "We hear reports that North Korea might be preparing for another missile test".

The U.S.is calling for an emergency session of the UN Security Council and the Human Rights Council in Geneva amid mass demonstrations in Iran, Washington's UN envoy said Tuesday.

There have been sporadic meetings between diplomats over individual issues like United States detainees, but those died out after the regime's sixth nuclear test in September.

"All are proof that Iran has defied the global community and not just one time".

"The worldwide community has a role to play on this", Haley urged.

"The people of Iran are crying out for freedom", Haley said. In the days ahead, we will be calling for an emergency session, both here in NY and at the Human Rights Council in Geneva.

Israel claims all of Jerusalem as its united capital, while the Palestinians see the eastern sector as the capital of their future state. In 2009, the Green Revolution saw thousands of protesters in Iran taking to the streets to contest the recent reelection of president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. So we applaud the tremendous courage of the Iranian people. "All freedom-loving people must stand with their cause", Nikki Haley told reporters at the UN's NY headquarters.

Iran's mission to the United Nations said the evidence was "fabricated" to serve a U.S. agenda.

The demonstrations in Iran, which have erupted against a backdrop of rising food and gasoline prices, began Thursday in the northeastern city of Mashhad before spreading to other cities.

"These accusations seek also to cover up for the Saudi war crimes in Yemen, with USA complicity", a statement by the mission's spokesman read.

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

Diplomats tell CNN the Trump administration was in touch with European allies over the weekend to coordinate strategies, but efforts to put out a joint statement were met with reluctance from some governments.
