UN Security Council to meet on enforcing North Korea sanctions

"We always had the sense that it was an incredibly closely watched speech", said top Barack Obama adviser Ben Rhodes, who helped draft eight presidential addresses to the United Nations.

During eight months in office, Trump has brusquely questioned decades-old alliances and ratcheted up the heat on simmering disputes with foes in North Korea and Iran.

"90 percent of North Korea's trade is being cut off".

Tillerson said it's up to North Korea to avoid the USA taking military action. Co-hosts Britain, France and Italy said a global response is needed "to make the online space a hostile environment for terrorists".

US Ambassador Nikki Haley was a driving force behind a $600-million-dollar cut to the United Nations peacekeeping budget this year.

While Trump has announced that the United States will pull out of the 2015 Paris Climate Agreement, Macron will be hosting a meeting Tuesday to spur its implementation. We can't be sure that each and every one was intentional; in some cases, he may have been confused or ignorant. Trump has repeatedly denigrated anonymous officials who have released damaging or embarrassing information about the President and his administration. "To get all countries, everyone to do all they can to enforce those sanctions", said National Security Advisor H.R. McMaster.

"He said at some point in the future, if there can be, if there can be a deal that addresses these fundamental flaws he's open to it", he said. So some diplomats were surprised that the United States would sponsor an event Monday on reforming the 193-member world body.

North Korea continues to be the most hard foreign policy challenge facing the White House, and Trump will be conducting diplomacy himself as he tries to win more support for his administration's efforts to isolate and pressure the provocative regime. The U.S. has asked member nations to sign a declaration on U.N. reforms, and more than 100 have done so.

Trump wants the U.N.to cut spending and make other operational changes.

"I am confident that if we work together and champion truly bold reforms the United Nations will emerge as a stronger, more effective, more just and greater force for peace and harmony in the world", Trump said in his first remarks at the UN in NY since his inauguration as president in January.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said: "To serve the people we support and the people who support us, we must be nimble and effective, flexible and efficient".

"I actually saw great potential right across the street to be honest with you, and it was only for the reason that the United Nations was here that that turned out to be such a successful project", Trump joked.

Trump also planned to hold separate talks Monday with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and French President Emmanuel Macron.

His appearance - which aides say will last around a half-hour - is the centerpiece of a weeklong marathon of remarks by world leaders, each vying to make their mark on the global stage.

But Mr Gowan said the United States president could also prove to be "surprisingly emollient in the General Assembly".
