To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what recent estimate he has made of the number of UN member states that have not submitted implementation reports on (a) UN Security Council Resolution 2270 and (b) UN Security Council Resolution 2321 to the 1718 DPRK Sanctions Committee; and what recent representations he has made to his counterparts in UN member states on their obligation to submit implementation reports to that committee.

The 1718 DPRK Sanctions Committee has received, as of 9 September 2017, implementation reports from 96 Member States on UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 2270 and from 80 Member States on UNSCR 2321. Of the 193 Member States, 97 are yet to submit a report on UNSCR 2270 and 113 on UNSCR 2321. The UK regularly raises the importance of the implementation of UNSCRs, which include the requirement for Member States to submit implementation reports.
