GETTYThe North Korean ambassador was summoned to the Foreign office for a dressing down
The hermit kingdom’s ambassador to the UK, Choe II, was ordered to the Foreign Office where it was made clear “how strongly the UK condemns” the latest intercontinental ballistic missile test conducted by the despotic regime.
Analysis from last week's launch shows the US mainland is now within range of Kim’s deadly weapons, including the popular cities of Los Angeles and Chicago.
The North Korean leader claimed that the reclusive country could carry out a nuclear attack on America “in any place, anytime”.Related articles
Following his meeting with ambassador Choe II in London, Foreign Office minister Lord Ahmad said: “Once again, North Korea's actions directly violate multiple UN Security Council resolutions and threaten international security.
“The UK will work with our partners and allies to tackle this threat.
“I call on the regime to stop its dangerous activity, change its course and concentrate on its people's welfare rather than illegally pursuing its nuclear and ballistic missile programmes.”
