To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the statement by the International Democrat Union ‎on the People's Democratic Republic of Korea issued on 24 November.
Answered on: 09 December 2014

We welcome the statement by the International Democrat Union (IDU) on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The UN General Assembly’s Third Committee has sent an important signal that systematic and widespread human rights violations will no longer be ignored by the international community. We join the IDU in urging all members of the UN to vote for the final adoption of this resolution, which strikes an appropriate balance between pursuing accountability for human rights violations and encouraging the DPRK to address international concerns through engagement and concrete actions.
