North Korea: Nuclear Weapons

Volume 458: debated on Monday 12 March 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what effect suspension of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s nuclear activity she expects to have on British interests in (a) the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and (b) the Republic of Korea. (124700)

We welcome the 13 February Agreement and the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s commitment to suspend nuclear activities. This is an essential first step towards the goal of full denuclearisation in North Korea and towards ensuring stability in the Korean Peninsula, which is clearly in UK interests.
