Media – During a Security Council briefing on the human rights situation in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea (DPRK), Elizabeth Salmón, Special Rapporteur on the human rights situation in DPRK said, “Some people are starving. Others have died due to malnutrition, diseases, and lack of access to health care. Access to food, medicines, and health care remains a concern.”

She continued, “Militarization also promotes the systematic exploitation of the population.”

Salmón explained, “The leadership in the DPRK continues to demand its citizens to tighten their belts so that the available resources could be used to fund the nuclear and missile program.”
