UN passes resolution condemning North Korean human rights for 18th straight year

DPRK rejects ‘grave infringement’ as US-led conspiracy to overthrow the Kim Jong Un regime

The U.N. General Assembly condemned North Korea’s poor human rights record for the 18th consecutive year on Tuesday, as the international community seeks to keep up pressure on the regime to improve accountability and transparency.

The “Situation of human rights in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea resolution” passed the Assembly by consensus after clearing the U.N.’s Third Committee in November.
