U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley sent a message to Kim Jong-un and North Korea during an interview with NBC. She said that the USA is not looking for a fight and they want to solve the problem with North Korea in a more peaceful way. However, if North Korea starts a fight the USA will fire back. Also, it’s good to know that the USA partners are preparing their weapons, just in case.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Monday said the U.S. is not “looking for a fight” with North Korea but warned Pyongyang not to “give us a reason” to have one.
“What we have said from the beginning, and what I’ll continue to say, is the United States is not looking for a fight so don’t give us a reason to have one,” Haley said during an interview on NBC’s “Today.”
Haley during the interview said she thinks North Korean leader Kim Jong Un is “starting to flex his muscles because he feels the pressure.”
“Last week, the [U.N.] Security Council unanimously condemned what North Korea’s doing with their testing,” she said.
“China has been considerably helpful in putting pressure on him, and I think he’s just trying to show his strength to the people of his country, but it’s not going to work.”
Haley said China has been a partner to the United States in attempting to handle the situation in North Korea.
“Working with China for the first time — they have really been our partner in trying to make sure that we hold him at bay, and I think it’s a new day when you’ve got China and the United States working together on a statement to condemn North Korea,” she said.
“They put pressure on him. He feels it. That’s why he’s responding this way. And I think it is a different day.”
When asked whether a preemptive strike on North Korea is really being considered, Haley said the U.S. will not do anything unless given reason to take action.
“Our goal is not to start a fight,” she said.
“Right now, we’re saying don’t test, don’t use nuclear missiles, don’t try and do any more actions, and I think he’s understanding that.”
Haley’s comments come after North Korea on Sunday said its military could sink a U.S. aircraft carrier President Trump is sending to the region “with a single strike.”
The USS Carl Vinson strike group and Japanese navy ships are currently conducting exercises in the Philippine Sea.
Although Kim Jong-un is preparing his weapons and conducts missile tests, let’s hope that he doesn’t launch an attack against the USA. If he fires, we will fire back. It’s said loud and clear. Let’s hope that Kim Jong-un got the message.
