‘China must decide’
Ms Haley said in a statement that North Korea was already subject to numerous Security Council resolutions that they “flout with impunity”.
“An additional Security Council resolution that does not significantly increase the international pressure on North Korea is of no value,” she said.
“In fact it is worse than nothing because it sends the message to the North Korean dictator that the international community is unwilling to seriously challenge him.”
She urged China to rein in North Korea.
“China must decide whether it is finally willing to take this vital step. The time for talk is over,” she added.
On Friday, North Korea test-fired a second intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM), claiming it proved that the entire US was within striking range.
The launch came three weeks after the state’s first ICBM test.
Despite fierce objections from China, the US military recently began installing missile defences – the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (Thaad) system – in South Korea, with the aim of shooting down any North Korean missiles fired in conflict.
