The UK welcomes the unanimous adoption of the latest UN Security Council resolution on North Korea (UNSCR 2397). The international community has once again shown it is united in its condemnation of North Korea's reckless and destabilising actions. This resolution further reduces the revenues North Korea uses to fund its illegal nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.
The Foreign Secretary and I followed the process of agreeing this tough new resolution closely. Our officials in Whitehall and the UK Mission to the United Nations also worked closely together to deliver this resolution. We will continue to work with our allies and international partners to increase diplomatic pressure on the DPRK to choose a better path.
