The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) has issued a statement following North Korea’s ballistic missile launches on 27 March.

An FCDO spokesperson said:

North Korea’s ballistic missile launches on 27 March are a breach of multiple UN Security Council resolutions. Illegal ballistic missile launches continue to destabilise the peace and security of the Korean Peninsula.

The UK will continue to call out violations of UNSCRs. We strongly urge North Korea to return to dialogue and take credible steps towards denuclearisation.
