Mark Field, minister for Asia and the Pacific, called for Kim Sung Gi to meet him in a bid to urge him to get the hermit kingdom to end its “illegal pursuit” of nuclear and ballistic missiles.

Japan’s government was forced to warn residents in its path to take cover as missiles flew over the island of Hokkaido on Monday.

The missiles then landed in the sea after travelling for nearly 1,700miles.

Following a meeting with the North Korean ambassador, Mr Field, said: “I summoned the North Korean ambassador to the Foreign Office today and made clear how strongly the UK condemns the regime’s launch of an intermediate range missile over Japan on 28 August.

“Once again, North Korea’s reckless actions violate multiple UN Security Council resolutions and threaten international security. The UK will work with our partners and allies to tackle this threat.

“I urge the regime to end its illegal pursuit of nuclear and ballistic missiles and return to dialogue with the international community.”

The meeting came as Theresa May was in the middle of a three-day trip to Japan to meet her counterpart, Shinzo Abe, and business leaders.

Speaking from Japan yesterday, the Prime Minister urged China to exert its influence over Pyongyang as she revealed the UK is looking at ways of exerting further pressure on despot leader Kim Jong-un.
