The Foreign Secretary has regular discussions with Secretary of State Pompeo on how to resolve the threat posed by North Korea's nuclear and ballistic missile programmes, most recently on 5 March. We welcome the US commitment to continue talks following the recent summit in Hanoi. We will continue to work closely with the US and our other international partners and use a wide range of diplomatic tools, including through our Embassy in Pyongyang, in an effort to achieve North Korea's denuclearisation.
