Foreign Secretary William Hague has welcomed commitment by the DPRK to halt nuclear tests and uranium enrichment and to accept IAEA inspectors to verify this undertaking.

Foreign Secretary William Hague said:

“This is very positive news. Recent changes in the North Korean leadership provide an opportunity for renewed engagement with the international community. This commitment by the DPRK to halt nuclear tests and uranium enrichment and to accept IAEA inspectors to verify this undertaking is an important step. If the North Korean Government upholds this commitment and seizes this opportunity, it will find that the international community is ready to work with North Korea to achieve lasting peace and security on the Korean Peninsula.”
