||The Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. 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. In addition, we continue to work
with international partners to ensure existing Resolutions are implemented effectively.
