Foreign Office statement following North Korea missile tests - 20 March 2020

The FCO comments on the sixteenth ballistic missile test carried out by North Korea in the past year, and the third time in March.

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson yesterday said:

We are disappointed that North Korea has carried out a short range ballistic missile launch, a clear breach of UN Security Council resolutions and the sixteenth ballistic missile test in the past year. We call for the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of the DPRK. Until we see credible steps towards this goal, sanctions must continue to be enforced.
