US Supports freedom in North Korea

WASHINGTON: State Department concerns over North Korea freedom week and recognize the efforts of the North Korean defector and human rights community to continue to shine a spotlight on the dire human right situation in North Korea. US says, for decades, the regime in North Korea has subjected its people to egregious violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms. Approximately 100,000 individuals languish in political prison camps and their family members and children often suffer by their sides. Further, those trying to flee this oppressive environment, if caught, are often tortured or killed.

US remain gravely concerned and deeply troubled by these abuses and continue to work with the international community to raise awareness, highlight abuses and violations, enhance access to independent information, and promote respect for human rights in North Korea.
