Britain hopes North Korean nuclear move will be positive step
LONDON, April 21 (Reuters) - Britain said on Saturday that North Korea's plan to cease nuclear tests would be a positive step and that it hoped this was a sign of good faith.

"A long term commitment from Kim Jung Un to halt all nuclear tests and ICBM launches would be a positive step. We hope this indicates an effort to negotiate in good faith," the British government said in a statement.

"We remain committed to working with our international partners to bring about our goal of a complete, verifiable and irreversible denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula, and to do so through peaceful means." (Reporting by Andy Bruce Editing by Alexander Smith)
