A Foreign and Commonwealth Office spokesperson said:
We are concerned that North Korea has carried out multiple ballistic missile launches, a clear breach of UN Security Council resolutions, the fifteenth ballistic missile test in the past year and the second in two weeks.
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.
We strongly encourage North Korea to change course and to focus on building a brighter future for its people.
