United Kingdom says world will stand together against N.Korea after missile launch

Britain's Foreign minister Boris Johnson and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson take part in a joint press conference after their meeting on Libya at Lancaster House in London

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, returns from his visit to the British Overseas Territories that have been devastated by Hurricane Irma today (Thursday 14 September) and will host a meeting with worldwide partners in London about continued co-ordination in response to the Hurricane.

Iran is not meeting the expectations laid out in the global nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA), US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Thursday.

But in the face of resistance from China and Russian Federation, the U.N. Security Council on Monday imposed only restrictions on the North's oil imports, among other sanctions.

"We will stand by our ally as Brexit continues to take shape". We look forward to continuing this alliance'.

Britain has been a vocal supporter of tough new sanctions imposed at the United Nations Security Council after a series of North Korean nuclear tests.

South Korea conducted its own missile exercise as Pyongyang fired its missile, taking into account the distance to North Korea's firing site, according to NBC News.

He also said an extension to the cartel's cuts was possible since volumes of oil stocks were still a challenge. In August, OPEC's total crude oil production eased by 79,000 b/d, to average nearly 32.8 million b/d.

China opposes North Korea's nuclear weapons development but worries that greater economic pressure on the North could trigger a collapse.

The U.S. pushed for an oil embargo after North Korea conducted its sixth and most powerful nuclear test on September 3.

Mr Johnson will hold joint talks with Mr Tillerson and French political director Nicolas de Riviere about the aftermath of Hurricane Irma.

"I've seen firsthand the devastation Hurricane Irma has caused people in the Caribbean".

In another meeting, Tillerson will also discuss the situation in Libya, where two competing governments and dozens of militias have jousted for power followed the 2011 overthrow of longtime dictator Moamer Kadhafi.

They will then discuss the upheaval in Libya with representatives from the U.N., Italy, Egypt and the United Arab Emirates, hoping to give impetus to U.N. mediation efforts. "Close coordination with our allies is vital for both the short-term and long-term recovery efforts", Johnson was quoted as saying Wednesday ahead of the meeting.
