We share the assessment of the UN Panel of Experts to the 1718 Sanctions Committee who published a report in November 2010 indicating that Iran and the Democratic People Republic of Korea (DPRK) were co-operating in the development of ballistic missiles. The DPRK's network of proliferation activities, including to countries such as Iran, is a threat to regional and international security.
We strongly support the tough sanctions imposed by UN Security Council Resolutions 1718 and 1874, which are designed to curb the range of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and conventional arms related proliferation activities undertaken by the DPRK. UN Security Council Resolution 1929 also requires countries to take steps to ensure that shipments of weapons and proliferation sensitive goods on route to Iran are stopped. We continue to work closely with international partners to ensure that these measures are robustly implemented.
