To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what assessment he has made of the deliberations at the UN Security Council meeting on 9 April 2003 pertaining to North Korea. [109381]

During preliminary discussion of North Korea's nuclear programmes on 9 April 2003, the UN Security Council expressed its concern and agreed to follow developments. Council members are considering the issue in more detail at expert level. We believe that this is a matter concerning international peace and security, and therefore, a legitimate issue for the Security Council to discuss.
