We are focused on working with our international partners to increase pressure on the regime so that they change direction and open the way towards peaceful resolution. The international community has universally and repeatedly condemned North Korea's flagrant disregard for international rules and systems. We are united in increasing the pressure on North Korea's leaders to stop their destabilising actions, including their illegal ballistic missile and nuclear tests. The North Korean regime is the cause of this problem, and they will need to show a serious and measurable change in their behaviour to create the right conditions for talks.
