"We pray that freedom and human rights will carry the day", she said in a statement.

"What made you believe that you are on the right side of history?" the reporter asked. "They wanted to see the embassy moved to Jerusalem, and we followed through with that". They've come out against the leader. "They work with us at times, and they also harbour the terrorists that attack our troops in Afghanistan".

Tension has been rising over North Korea's nuclear and missile programmes, which it pursues in defiance of years of U.N. Security Council resolutions, with bellicose rhetoric coming from both Pyongyang and the White House.
