§ Mr. Soames
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what the objectives are of Government policy towards North Korea. 
§ Mr. Rammell
The UK maintains a policy of engagement with North Korea in order to encourage it to become a responsible member of the international community. We use our regular opportunities for direct dialogue with the North Korean Government to urge it to end missile exports, respect the integrity of the international non-proliferation regime, address the serious concerns about its human rights record, and commit to a multilateral dialogue to find a peaceful resolution to the nuclear issue.
