The mass amount of human rights violations occurring in North Korea has finally surfaced on the UN conference. The annual resolution by the Third Committee emphasized on the amount and measures of human rights violations that are taking place in North Korea. From women’s rights to restrictions on freedom of thought and belief, the range of human rights violations in North Korea is broad.
The UN Secretary Council and International Criminal Court (ICC) have taken measures to stop the human rights violations in North Korea. The resolution demands the Pyongyang rulers to “extend their full cooperation to the Special Rapporteur, including by granting him full, free and unimpeded access to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea”.
Although such actions have been taken, will North Korea stop wth its violation of human rights? Even though it is my greatest desire for the end of human rights violation, due to N. Korean’s strength in governing with terror, I don’t believe that the terrible act will come to stop at once. However, I believe that this topic coming up in international discussions and international communities taking action to prevent the violation of human rights, are first steps to preventing human rights violations in N. Korea from happening.
