Foreign Minister Kang Meets UN Rapporteur on N. Korean Human Rights

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha met with the UN’s point man on North Korea’s human rights situation and discussed cooperation on the issue.

At the start of their meeting at the Foreign Ministry in Seoul on Monday, Kang highly assessed the importance of the opinions and efforts presented by UN special rapporteur on human rights in North Korea, Tomás Ojea Quintana.

Noting that North Korean human rights is a "matter of great concern" for the Moon Jae-in administration, the foreign minister expressed hope the South Korean government will continue to hold discussions with Quintana regarding the issue.  

Quintana said this second visit to South Korea presents him a great opportunity to hear more about South Korea’s policies and approach toward the situation in the North.

He also addressed the importance of a two-track approach in dealing with the North Korean human rights issue, calling for both accountability and efforts to engage in dialogue with the regime.
