To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what the Government's policy is on whether secondary sanctions should be imposed on individuals, entities and governments in activities prohibited by UN Security Council resolutions on North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes in addition to the sanctions already set out in such resolutions.

The UN Security Council has already – and unanimously – imposed increasingly stringent sanctions on North Korea in order to limit its ability to pursue its nuclear weapons programme. As I made clear in my statement to Parliament on 5 September, the UK is looking at measures that can increase the pressure on Pyongyang to change course. We are working with our international partners to ensure that all existing measures currently in place are fully implemented.
