FCO statement on North Korea missile test launches


A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said:

Following missile test launches by North Korea on 24 July we continue to closely monitor the situation.

We encourage North Korea to return to talks with the US as agreed at the meeting between President Trump and Kim Jong Un on 30 June. We maintain that North Korea must engage in meaningful negotiations with the US and take concrete steps towards complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation.

The UK fully supports the US in its efforts to achieve North Korean denuclearisation. International sanctions must remain in place and be fully enforced until their nuclear and ballistic missile programmes are dismantled.
