It's Tillerson vs. Haley Over Iranian Nuclear Deal

HANG ON A SECOND'If people want to take it to mean something else that¿s their issue it¿s not anything I spend time on' Haley said denying interest in becoming secretary of state

DOJ investigating Equifax stock sales Top US security official targeted in Cuba Embassy covert attacks: report Trump adviser tells foreign officials no change on Paris climate deal MORE on Friday dismissed rumors that he will be replaced by U.N. Ambassador Nikki HaleyNimrata (Nikki) HaleyMattis hints at US military options for North Korea Trump, Netanyahu talk Middle East peace at United Nations meeting Trump begins first United Nations remarks by mentioning his nearby building MORE, saying in an interview that he's planning to "hang around".

There are many signs that Tillerson's position within the Trump administration is tenuous, but on North Korea in particular, there's a space between Tillerson and Trump that Haley, who is formally Tillerson's subordinate, has seemed happy to fill. It is Haley who has to take Trump's coarse ideas and often-contradictory policy pronouncements and translate them to the world in a more palatable mix.

"She would be a more capable spokeswoman for the Trump administration's foreign policy" than Tillerson, Bremmer said.

Tillerson said Washington is "engaging with North Korea's most important supporters, economic supporters..." Kim also said that he will make the U.S. "pay dearly" for threatening his country. "We have developed strong allies and strong alliances internationally".

At the same time, she stressed that for now the "diplomatic option" remains the main one for addressing the North Korean nuclear threat.

The two steps, he added, offered the most realistic prospect of restoring peace and stability in Afghanistan and the region. Pakistani officials said Abbasi also raised his country's objections over India's proposed role in his talks with U.S.

U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley, left whispers to U.S. Vice President Mike Pence during a high level Security Council meeting on United Nations peacekeeping operations.

Analysts said Haley would pursue a different course at State than Tillerson, who has focused on cutting the budget and the bureaucracy in the name of efficiency.

Haley turned down the top diplomatic job previously, weeks after Trump's surprise election victory past year. The president returned to her the following month offering the United Nations position. "When you know how to get things done, when you know the practical aspects I think it's a difference and it's better".

"No, I do not", Haley replied.
