U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley on Sunday said America isn’t seeking a regime change in Iran.

In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Haley pushed back on remarks by President Donald Trump’s lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, that the administration sympathizes with overthrow efforts by Iran’s self-declared government in exile.

“We’re not looking to do a regime change in Iran or anywhere,” Haley said. “We're looking to protect Americans, our allies and make sure we do everything we can to stop it. 

“The president has been very strong on Iran and has been strong that we can't turn away from them, that they're a bad actor,” she continued. “You'll continue to see him strong in terms of every action we take there. Iran's economy has plummeted because the president pulled out of the deal. They're getting desperate and I think we're seeing the actions of that.”

She also touted the “major” steps that North Korea has taken since a June accord with President Donald Trump last June — but insisted the U.S. demand for denuclearization with verification will continue.

“It is a major step that they're not testing,” she said, adding, “The fact they stopped that and two leaders in Korea shook hands and said they want to denuclearize and want peace is no small thing. The fact that at their parade they didn't show off nuclear weapons for the first time is a major accomplishment.

“We are far from reaching the end of this,” she continued. “What we want to focus on is denuclearization with verification.”
