UK Government to Keep UNSC Resolution “under review”

In a written response from Baroness Warsi, Senior Minister of State, Department for Communities and Local Government & Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Minister confirmed that the UK Government will “keep the prospect of a UNSC Resolution under review”, whilst pursuing active dialogue at an upcoming  UN General Assembly session and “a strong DPRK resolution, strongly supported, in the UNGA Third Committee”.

Responding to Lord Alton, who also asked if the UK Government would sponsor a UNSC Resolution “if it appears to face resistance from Russia or China”, Baroness Warsi noted that “The UK believes strongly that there should be no impunity for serious international crimes, such as those which the Commission of Inquiry found are being committed in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK).”
