Hague condemns North Korea rocket launch

Hague condemns North Korea rocket launch

William Hague has said the UK is consulting with other nations on the UN Security Council about what “next steps” to take against North Korea after a successful rocket launch.

The Foreign Secretary has summoned Pyongyang's ambassador to the UK in response to the “provocative” long-range launch.

The international community has widely condemned the launch, with UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon describing it as a "clear violation" of a UN resolution, while the United States has called it a "highly provocative act that threatens regional security".

Speaking from Morocco, where he is attending a Friends of Syria meeting, Mr Hague said: “We look to the DPRK to avoid further provocative actions, and try to build peace and stability on the Korean Peninsula.”

A member of the UN Security Council Panel of Experts described the launch as a "very serious development". John Everard warned that if Iran had colluded with the North Koreans, there was a danger of "two rogue states with the technology of launching long-range delivery vehicles".
