UN Ambassador Nikki Haley sent a message of strength to North Korea on Monday, asserting that leader Kim Jong Un is “begging for war.”

Haley spoke to the UN Security Council on Monday regarding the latest threats from North Korea and encouraged them to adopt the “strongest possible measures” against the rogue state.

“Kim Jong Un’s action cannot be seen as defensive,” Haley said. “He wants to be acknowledged as a nuclear power.”

North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful missile test on Sunday, and state media claims they now have the capability to attach a hydrogen bomb to an ICBM missile.

“His abusive use of missiles and his nuclear threats show that he is begging for war,” Haley told the UN. “War is never something the United States wants–we don’t want it now–but our country’s patience is not unlimited.”

“We will defend our allies and our territory,” Haley asserted. “The idea that some have suggested a freeze for freeze is insulting.”
