N. Korea releases internal rights report in Chinese

Outreach in China part of broader effort to influence debate over human rights

North Korea on Thursday published an extensive human rights report in Chinese state media, their latest effort at publicizing their side of the human rights story.

The report was carried in several online publications in China, and was released in a move to counteract the "wrong views and widespread misunderstanding" of its human rights situation. This perception, the North’s report stated, originates with the U.S. and its “followers,” and is aimed at interfering in the North’s domestic affairs and “overthrowing its social system.”
