LONDON: Minister for Asia, Amanda Milling, comments on the recent test of a ballistic missile by North Korea.
Minister for Asia, Amanda Milling said:
The UK is deeply concerned by North Korea’s decision to carry out a ballistic missile test; this violates multiple UN Security Council Resolutions and poses a threat to regional peace and security.
We urge North Korea to refrain from further provocations and take concrete steps towards complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation. 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 unlawful activities. We strongly encourage North Korea to return to dialogue with the US.
