The UK is concerned by North Korea's unprovoked demolition of the Kaesong Liaison Office and by their recent inflammatory remarks criticising South Korea. We are in contact with international partners and support South Korea in its efforts to maintain calm and stability. The UK is committed to securing peace on the Korean peninsula and the complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of North Korea.
