Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office, has provided the following answer to your written parliamentary question (HL1673):
Question by Lord Alton of Liverpool:
To ask His Majesty’s Government whether they will raise the current escalation in North Korea at the next session of the Security Council. (HL1673)
Tabled on: 17 January 2024
Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon:
The UK consistently condemns the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s (DPRK) persistent ballistic missile testing which breaches multiple UN Security Council (UNSC) resolutions and threatens regional peace and stability. The UK joined partners in calling for UNSC consultations on 18 January, where Ambassador James Kariuki condemned the DPRK’s violation of UNSC resolutions and complete disregard for the international non-proliferation regime. We will continue to call out the DPRK’s illegal actions until it returns to full adherence to its international obligations.
