PRESS RELEASE : North Korea ballistic missile launch – FCDO statement [October 2022]

The press release issued by the Foreign Office on 9 October 2022.

A Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office spokesperson said:

North Korea’s decision to conduct another ballistic missile test on 8 October is a violation of UN Security Council Resolutions. The UK continues to work closely with our partners to urge North Korea to return to dialogue and take credible steps towards denuclearisation in a complete, verifiable and irreversible manner.

We call on North Korea to prioritise the well-being of their people instead of the illegal pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
