Alok Sharma statement on North Korea missile testing

FCO Minister for Asia Alok Sharma expresses concern following reports of more ballistic missile launches by North Korea


Minister for Asia, Alok Sharma, said:

Reports of yet more ballistic missile launches by North Korea are deeply concerning. Missile launches of this kind demonstrates that North Korea continues to be a major threat to regional security as it develops its ballistic missile programme in defiance of multiple UN Security Council Resolutions. The UK strongly condemns these actions and we call on North Korea to comply with UN Security Council resolutions and stop all provocations.
