North Korea missile tests UK statement

Minister for Asia, Nigel Adams said:

We are deeply concerned that North Korea has conducted two short-range ballistic missile tests. These tests are a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolutions and a threat to regional peace and security.

Alongside our allies and partners, the UK is committed to peace on the Korean Peninsula, upholding the rules-based international system and securing an end to North Korea’s illegal activities.

North Korea must refrain from further provocations, and engage in meaningful negotiations with the US.
