Following North Korea’s failed satellite launch on 27 May, a Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) spokesperson gave a statement.

An FCDO spokesperson said:

North Korea’s failed satellite launch on 27 May is another breach of multiple UN Security Council resolutions (UNSCRs). Unlawful launches continue to destabilise the peace and security of the Korean Peninsula.

The UK strongly urges North Korea to stop such provocations, return to dialogue and take credible steps towards denuclearisation.
