No need to withdraw diplomats from N.Korea: UK's Hague

British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Sunday he saw no immediate need to withdraw his country's diplomats from North Korea despite a warning from Pyongyang that it could not guarantee their safety if conflict broke out.

"I haven't seen any immediate need to respond to that by moving our diplomats out of there," he told the BBC.

He added however that Britain would "keep this under close review with our allies and international partners".
