North Korea missile test launches: Foreign Office statement
The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is deeply concerned by the repeated launches of ballistic missiles by North Korea, most recently on 5 August.
FCO spokesperson yesterday said:
We are deeply concerned by the repeated launches of ballistic missiles by North Korea, most recently on 5 August. These are a clear breach of UN Security Council Resolutions and pose a grave threat to our regional partners and global security.
We encourage North Korea to engage in meaningful discussions with the United States in order to secure complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation. Until this happens UN sanctions must be fully enforced by all states.
