The UK is deeply concerned by the launch on 25 March of two short range ballistic missiles by North Korea in violation of UN Security Council resolutions. The Minister for Asia made clear our deep concern in a statement that day and called on North Korea to refrain from further provocations and to engage in meaningful negotiations with the United States. The UK joined other members of the UN Security Council in requesting that the Council address North Korea's latest actions at its meeting on 30 March. We remain committed to securing peace on the Korean peninsula, working closely with allies and partners in upholding the rules-based international system and securing an end to North Korea's illegal activities.
