The UK is concerned about all reports of illegal transactions with North Korea. We are at the forefront of international efforts to ensure UN sanctions on North Korea are robustly enforced, including those restricting technology imports. We engage widely with all states to urge full compliance with UN Security Council resolutions. Until North Korea takes steps towards its complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation, sanctions must remain and be fully enforced.
