Japan, the US, and South Korea have requested that a UN Security Council meeting be held to jointly discuss human rights issues in North Korea.
On August 10th (local time), Ambassador to the United Nations Greenfield told reporters at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, "North Korea's crackdown on human rights is closely related to international peace and security issues." He made it clear that he requested the convening of a Security Council meeting on human rights in North Korea. Ambassador Greenfield's press conference was also attended by Kimihiro Ishikane, Ambassador to the United Nations, and Hwang Jung-kook, Ambassador of the Republic of Korea.
“If the Security Council meets, it will be the first time since 2017 that we will have a public discussion on human rights in North Korea,” he said. "We must hold the North Korean regime accountable for its oppression and violation of human rights.”
He continued, "We know that the North Korean regime's suppression and violation of human rights promotes the development of illegal weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs. We must resolve the fear of human rights abuses and crimes that we perpetrate daily against citizens of other United Nations member states."
