UK PM May says will work with partners to maintain pressure on N. Korea | Reuters

LONDON North Korea's missile tests are a threat to global peace and security and Britain will work with international partners to maintain pressure on Pyongyang, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Friday.

Speaking to television cameras alongside Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe after a bilateral meeting at her country residence, May said the pair had agreed that North Korea was continuing to take provocative action.

"In the face of this belligerence, we stand steadfast in our condemnation of such destabilising activity," she said.

"Prime Minister Abe and I have agreed that we will continue to work with our international partners to maintain pressure on North Korea and counter the security threat posed by its illegal pursuit of nuclear weapons, and work towards a peaceful resolution."
