"Time for talk is over": U.S. grapples for new approach on North Korea

North Korea “is already subject to numerous Security Council resolutions that they violate with impunity,” Haley said Sunday.

It was a seemingly stark admission — the US ambassador to the UN suggesting the North Korean crisis couldn’t be solved through diplomatic channels in the Security Council.

Analysts said that Haley’s comments publicly undermined the Security Council, which has been at the forefront of sanctions that have attempted to contain North Korea’s nuclear and missile program, albeit with little success.
