North Korea's deputy United Nations ambassador Kim In Ryong has accused the United States of creating "a dangerous situation in which a thermonuclear war may break out at any moment".>

The Foreign Secretary urged North Korea to stop its "belligerent acts" and comply with United Nations resolutions after its most recent missile test.

Sources said he will deliver a Commons statement as MPs return from the Easter recess which will also take in the latest developments in Syria following the United States missile attack in response to Bashar Assad's use of chemical weapons.
