Foreign Secretary condemns North Korea missile test
The Foreign Secretary says latest provocation shows North Korea’s disregard for its international obligations
Following reports of a submarine-launched ballistic missile test on 23 April, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:
This latest provocation, yet another violation of UN Security Council Resolutions, underlines the threat that North Korea presents to regional and international security.
In conducting this test, North Korea has again shown its blatant disregard for its international obligations and the UK will be working on a strong multilateral response through the UN and EU.
