Emily Thornberry, Shadow Foreign Secretary asks  the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, “what diplomatic steps he plans to take to support the denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula after the recent US-North Korean talks in Hanoi.”

Mark Field, Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs responded “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.”
