Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) strongly condemned the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK)’s satellite launch of 7 February, which used ballistic missile technology in clear violation of a number of UN Security Council Resolutions. We are working closely with our international counterparts, including permanent members of the UN Security Council, to ensure significant and substantive measures are agreed in response to the DPRK’s repeated provocations.

star this property answer text <p>We have made clear repeatedly in this House, in the UN Security Council and directly to North Korean Government officials that we condemn any ongoing nuclear activity by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and that such activity is in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions. As the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my Rt Hon. Friend the Member for Runnymede and Weybridge (Mr Hammond) said in his statement on 2 March, North Korea must put a stop to these provocations and take tangible steps to re-engage constructively with the international community. I met a senior visiting DPRK diplomat in December 2015 where I condemned their nuclear programme. I also summoned the DPRK Ambassador on two occasions in January and February where I made clear the British Government’s condemnation of their actions and that these provocations were a deliberate violation of a number of UN Security Council Resolutions.</p> more like this
