15 September 2021

A Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office spokesperson said:

These tests are a clear violation of UN Security Council Resolutions and a threat to regional peace and security.

North Korea must change course and take immediate steps towards complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation. Alongside our allies and partners, the UK is committed to peace on the Korean Peninsula, upholding the rules-based international system and securing an end to North Korea's unlawful activities.

We urge North Korea to refrain from further provocations, and to return to dialogue with the US.
