However, Haley said Sunday that such talks could not happen while North Korea persists with missile tests.
The missile apparently has a longer range than those North Korea has tested in recent times, according to the Washington Post, pointing to the country potentially testing a new type of missile.
The missile flew around 435 miles into the sea. It took approximately 30 minutes to reach that point, having reached an altitude of around 1,200 miles. One expert suggested that on a standard trajectory, rather than the higher-than-usual altitude this one reached, the missile could have a potential range of 2,800 miles, which would put Guam, an American territory, within its reach.
As such, the North Korea missile tests won't earn the country a seat at the table with the U.S. anytime soon, Haley said.
"Having a missile test is not the way to sit down with the president because he's absolutely not going to do it," the ambassador said on This Week on ABC News, according to the Post. "Until he meets our conditions, we're not sitting down with him."
North Korea has said in recent years it would have discussions with the U.S. as long as said talks stayed clear of any notion of the country killing off its nuclear weapons program. However, that's not going to work for the U.S., which will not agree to talks unless North Korea is open to suspending or freezing its nuclear program.
The latest missile launch comes as the Belt and Road Forum opens in Beijing, which lays out a development project from Chinese President Xi Jinping. Some are hoping that the test and summit will lead to China, an ally of North Korea, having an impetus to pressure Kim into halting nuclear and missile tests through its trade links, which Trump has been calling for Xi to do.
