America's United Nations ambassador dismisses proposed North-South Korea talks

North Korea 'preparing for missile strike' – US ambassador warns United Nations Nikki Haley Dings Obama's Iran Policy: 'We Must Not Make That Mistake Again' [VIDEO]

Nikki Haley, the USA ambassador to the United Nations, said Sunday Iran's government is "being tested by its own citizens" after three days of protests against the clerical regime.

Haley made her comments just hours after President Donald Trump also played down the need for direct talks between the two countries, which have technically been at war since 1950.

She added: "We are trying to promote the peace process, but if that will not happen, the president will not continue to fund it".

In the wake of Trump's recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital, a break with decades of United States policy, Palestinian officials have boycotted the USA as a mediator, canceling any meetings with U.S. envoys or diplomats.

He also plans to move the United States embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

"This evidence demonstrates a pattern of behaviour in which Iran sows conflict and extremism in direct violation of UN Security Council resolutions".




This isn't the first time the Trump administration has threatened to cut off funding following United States recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital. Well, we're watching those votes. We'll save a lot.

The offer was quickly disavowed by the White House, which ruled out a dialogue with Pyongyang until it "fundamentally improves its behaviour". "We won't take any of the talks seriously if they don't do something to ban all nuclear weapons in North Korea", Haley said.

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

After she read out social media posts written by Iranians in support of the protests, Haley dismissed Iranian leaders' contention that the protests were designed by Iran's enemies.

"If the Iranian dictatorship's history is any guide, we can expect more outrageous abuses in the days to come", she said. "The demonstrations are completely spontaneous", Haley said. 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. "This is the precise picture of a long oppressed peoples rising up against their dictators".
