G8 foreign ministers strongly condemned North Korea over its nuclear programme on Thursday but failed to bridge divisions over Syria beyond calling for more humanitarian aid for victims of the conflict.
After a two-day meeting in London, ministers including US Secretary of State John Kerry warned Pyongyang it faced further sanctions in the event of an expected missile launch, amid soaring tensions on the Korean peninsula.
In a final statement, the ministers "condemned in the strongest possible terms the continued development of its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programmes" including uranium enrichment.
"If the DPRK conducts another missile launch or nuclear test we have committed ourselves to take further significant measures," British Foreign Secretary William Hague told reporters afterwards.
