Foreign Secretary condemns missile test by North Korea

Boris Johnson condemns DPRK's intercontinental ballistic missile test and urges compliance with UN Security Council resolutions.

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, said:

The UK strongly condemns North Korea’s second test of an intercontinental ballistic missile and calls on the regime to immediately stop all activity that breaches UN Security Council resolutions.

The UK will stand alongside our allies and partners as we confront the growing threat North Korea poses to regional and international security. Once again North Korea shows no regard for its international obligations.

We urge the DPRK regime to put the well-being of its own people ahead of the illegal pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
