G8 talks tough on N Korea and aims to end sexual violence

Help

G8 foreign ministers have been discussing tensions in North Korea during talks in London, at which they also agreed to work to end sexual violence during times of conflict.

The issue, which William Hague described as a "priority" for the UK hosts, has the backing of the UN and other international non-governmental organisations.

A wider global effort to guarantee justice for victims of sexual violence, a joint initiative between the British foreign secretary and Angelina Jolie, was also on the agenda.
