The same day, Britain summoned the North Korean ambassador to the foreign ministry to condemn its ballistic missile launch. Mark Field, Britain's Minister for Asia and the Pacific, said in a statement that North Korea's reckless actions violate multiple UN Security Council resolutions and threaten international security.
