Washington's Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley dismissed the utility of possible direct talks between North and South Korea, warning that a harder line is necessary in light of reports that Pyongyang might be preparing for more ballistic missile tests.

In addition to her comments on Iran, Haley doubled down on President Donald Trump's decision to withhold more than $250 million in aid from Pakistan until its government does more to fight jihadists in the region. Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, my life only for Iran.

UNRWA has made a point of perpetuating the refugee status of the descendants of those who fled their homes during the war that took place when surrounding Arab nations attacked Israel after the declaration of the establishment of the state in May 1948.

Iran's missile program is not in breach of its nuclear deal and will continue despite objections from the United States, President Hassan Rouhani has said.

The US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on Tuesday praised the courage of Iranian demonstrators and said protests across the Islamic Republic were spontaneous and not driven by outside forces.

She also urged the worldwide community to speak out on the unfolding protests in Iran. "We're going to make sure they come to the table and we want to move forward with the peace process".
