U.S. calls N. Korea a force for “instability” due to poor human rights

Washington says DPRK, China, Russia, and Iran are "morally reprehensible"

The U.S. State Department on Friday called North Korea along with China, Russia, and Iran "morally reprehensible" and labeled them as "forces for instability" due to their poor human rights records.

As a part of its Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2017, the State Department singled out the four countries as they performed badly in nearly every human rights category.
