The Government has condemned North Korea after reports emerged that the country has been engaged with missile tests.
Philip Hammond, the Foreign Secretary, said:
“This latest provocation, yet another violation of UN Security Council Resolutions, underlines the threat that North Korea presents to regional and international security.
In conducting this test, North Korea has again shown its blatant disregard for its international obligations and the UK will be working on a strong multilateral response through the UN and EU”.
CNN reported that an official in the United States said:
“North Korea’s sub launch capability has gone from a joke to something very serious”.
