Boris Johnson, the Foreign Secretary, has welcomed a new United Nations Security Council Resolution on North Korea. The increased action by the UN follows by the repeated missile testing which the country has been involved with over recent weeks.
In a statement Johnson said:
“Britain and the international community have taken further action to address the nuclear threat posed by North Korea. The UN Security Council has unanimously adopted a new Resolution that extends sanctions against North Korea’s illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programmes to more individuals and organisations.
With this Resolution, the international community has sent a clear message. We are united against North Korea’s dangerous behaviour and its continuing disregard for international security. The UK calls on North Korea to return to the negotiating table and halt all activity that breaches UN Security Council resolutions. This is the only way to reduce tensions on the Korean Peninsula”.
