I refer the Hon. Member to the statement made by my Rt Hon Friend the Foreign Secretary (https://hansard.parliament.uk/Commons/2017-09-05/debates/C42A1D96-73C1-4D71-883E-BC8F83842285/KoreanPeninsula). North Korea has to provide a credible and genuine signal it is ready to discuss denuclearisation. The UK has been clear that we support dialogue under the right circumstances. We are working closely with partners to bring home to North Korea that a change in direction will open the way towards a peaceful resolution and a secure future.
