​We are working closely with our international partners to increase the pressure on North Korea to desisit from its destabilising actions and open the way towards a peaceful resolution to regional tension. North Korea needs to take credible, concrete steps towards its obligations to denuclearise for dialogue to occur. The UK stands ready to support negotiations in those circumstances, whether in the Six Party Talks or another agreed format.
