LONDON (Reuters) - Britain on Tuesday said it condemned the firing of a ballistic missile by North Korea, urging Pyongyang to return to talks with the United States and South Korea.

"The UK condemns North Korea’s decision to launch a short-range ballistic missile, in violation of UN Security Council Resolutions," a spokesperson for Britain's Foreign Office said in a statement.

"The UK remains committed to the goal of denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula and commends the diplomatic efforts of the US and regional partners to seek peace on the Korean Peninsula and preserve regional stability. We urge North Korea to return to dialogue."
