The British Government has expressed its support towards the warning of President Donald Trump to return “fire and fury” against North Korea if it continued to threaten the U.S. with nuclear attacks.
Amb. Matthew Rycroft who is UK’s Permanent Representative to the UN, has told UN Correspondents on Wednesday after a meeting of the Security Council that both countries were united against North Korea over its nuclear threats.
“The United Kingdom stands shoulder to shoulder with the United States in tackling this threat and many others.
“We are united in calling on the North Korean regime to halt its nuclear programme.
“The whole of the Security Council has come together behind that and I think that we should see the President’s public comments as one of the many strands of US activism.
“The United States has been very clear about its position.
“The United Kingdom has been very clear about our position and we call on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea’s regime to listen to that clarity.
“We call on DPRK to act on that clarity, to halt its nuclear programme; to halt its intercontinental ballistic missile programme, and it holds the key to sanctions being removed,” Rycroft said.
