The British Government has condemned a missile launch made this week by North Korea. Donald Trump, the President of the United States, also condemned the launch and said that “nobody’s happy about it”.
A statement from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office said:
“The UK regrets North Korea’s decision to carry out further short range ballistic missile launches. As we have made clear, we fully support the US in its efforts to achieve North Korea’s denuclearisation through negotiations.
Until North Korea abandons its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes in accordance with the Resolutions passed by the UN Security Council, sanctions must remain in place and be fully enforced.”
