People for Successful COrean REunification (PSCORE) takes this opportunity at the 42nd session of the United Nations (UN) Human Rights Council (HRC) to raise serious concerns over North Korean human rights violations and the State’s continued denial of those violations. Despite the Kim Jong-Un administration’s implementation of various national “plans” and “strategies” to promote the social rights of North Korean people, the Human Rights situation in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea is still highly alarming.

PSCORE thinks that the responses provided by the DPRK during the third UPR on North Korea were disappointing
considering the numerous recommendations that it refused to take into account. The DPRK is a signatory of some of the
most important international human rights bills and seems to be trying to improve its relations with the international
community. Considering this, the DPRK should be more receptive to the recommendations made by UN member states.
PSCORE wishes that the DPRK rethink its refutation of the aforementioned recommendations and, instead, ensure for
its people all basic human rights.
