Jim Cunningham MP asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, “what discussions he has had with his counterpart in the US Administration on the summit in Vietnam between the US President and the Supreme Leader of North Korea.”

Mark Field, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs responded, “The Foreign Secretary regularly discusses with US Secretary of State Pompeo how to resolve the threat posed by North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile programmes. We hope that the talks in Vietnam between President Trumpand Kim Jong Un will prove a basis for progress. We will continue to work closely with the US and our partners to support negotiations and to implement sanctions in full until North Korea’s complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation.”
