Foreign Office statement on North Korea missile test - 31 March 2020

The FCO comments on the fourth missile test carried out by North Korea this month.

A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson yesterday said:

The UK is deeply concerned that North Korea has carried out another short range ballistic missile launch in breach of UN Security Council resolutions. This is the fourth ballistic missile test this month and the seventeenth test in the past year.

North Korea’s missile and nuclear programmes are a threat to regional and global stability. Sanctions should remain in place until North Korea takes concrete steps to dismantle them. We encourage North Korea to engage in steps towards complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation.
