The Prime Minister, my Rt. Hon Friend the Member for Maidenhead (Theresa May) spoke to Acting President Hwang Kyo-Ahn on 24 March and the Foreign Secretary, my Rt. Hon Friend the Member for Uxbridge and South Ruislip (Boris Johnson) spoke to Foreign Minister Yun Byung-Se on 30 March, as well as hosting him for annual strategic level dialogue on 22 February. The British Ambassador in Seoul is also in frequent contact with the South Korean authorities. In these and other conversations we have made clear that the UK continues to support a robust response to North Korean provocations and United Nations Security Council Resolution violations and that we will continue to work with our international partners, including South Korea and China, to maintain pressure on North Korea.
