DPRK Deputy Ambassador to UN on IAEA report
The General Assembly was meeting to discuss a report on the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) activities over the past year. The Agency's report addresses the agency's continued safeguards activities with regard to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Iran and Syria and notes that the IAEA has "credible information" indicating that Iran had carried out "activities relevant to the development of a nuclear explosive device." Ambassador Ri Tong Il of the DPRK told the meeting that "the IAEA has no justification and no power to intervene on the nuclear issue of the Korean peninsula" as the DPRK "is not State Party to the NPT nor is it a member of the IAEA." Ri told the General Assembly that the DPRK was under threat from the United States, "the largest Nuclear Weapon State" and therefore "had no option but to go nuclear to defend itself, to safeguard the security and sovereignty and to safeguard the right to existence of the entire Korean nation." Set up in 1957 and headquartered in Vienna, Austria, the IAEA is the world's centre of cooperation in the nuclear field, working with its Member States and various partners around the world to promote safe, secure and peaceful nuclear technologies.

CTBTO detects radioactivity consistent with DPRK's February nuclear test
The CTBTO's radionuclide network has made a significant detection of radioactive noble gases that could be attributed to the nuclear test announced by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) on 12 February 2013. The detection was made at the radionuclide station in Takasaki, Japan, located at around 1,000 kilometres, or 620 miles, from the DPRK test site. Lower levels were picked up at another station in Ussuriysk, Russia. Two radioactive isotopes of the noble gas xenon were identified, xenon-131m and xenon-133, which provide reliable information on the nuclear nature of the source. The ratio of the detected xenon isotopes is consistent with a nuclear fission event occurring more than 50 days before the detection (nuclear fission can occur in both nuclear explosions and nuclear energy production). This coincides very well with the announced nuclear test by the DPRK that occurred on 12 February 2013, 55 days before the measurement.

North Korea's UN ambassador blames US for situation on Korean peninsula
Ambassador Sin Son Ho of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) said today (21 June) that "the fundamental reason of the instability on the Korean Peninsula is because the Korean armistice agreement has been nullified by the United States." Sin said the Government of the DPRK, "from its peace-loving policy has proposed to conclude a peace treaty which could replace current armistice agreement and strive tirelessly in order to end the current unstable cease-fire status." The 1953 armistice ended the Korean War with a peace treaty, which was never finalized. The DPRK representative also called for the dissolution of the US-led UN Command in South Korea. He said the United States military exercises in the Peninsula are the cause of "the tension and troubles" in the region. He added that "the United States is threatening the DPRK with the largest nuclear arsenal in the world" and therefore "the DPRK has the legitimate sovereign right to self-defence deterrent." Sin said the DPRK intends to hold "wide range discussions with the United States, including those of easing tension on the Korean Peninsula and replacing current armistice agreement with peace regime on the Korean Peninsula" as well as "the matters of the world without nuclear weapons the United States has already proposed." He stressed that "denuclearization should not be unilateral, it should not be confined only the Korean Peninsula on the northern part" but instead should include the "entire Korean Peninsula, including South Korea." He added that "all threats and blackmails from the United States with nuclear weapons against us completely come to an end." Continuing his visit to China, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Thursday stressed the importance of creating the adequate conditions to resume dialogue between parties in the Korean Peninsula and rid the region of nuclear weapons.

DPRK delegate disrupts UN Human Rights meeting
During a meeting disrupted by a North Korean delegate, UN Human Rights official Ivan Simonovic said "it is my sincere hope that the international community will continue to examine ways to prevent and punish the crimes that are being perpetrated in the DPRK today." Simonovic highlighted the work of Human Rights Council's commission of inquiry that took place last year. That report stated that the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) is a state characterized by the denial of the rights to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. It also warned that human rights violations were committed in a widespread, systematic manner, adding that those violations constituted crimes against humanity. Simonovic also said "the tireless efforts of the international community, civil society and the victims from whom we will hear from today, is working. It is working towards bringing the DPRK to the realisation that violations will not go unseen and unpunished." During the event –sponsored by the US and South Korea delegations-, North Korean defector Joseph Kim said "my country is buried and lost in political conversations. Sometimes we forget that North Korea is not just a country buried in a dictatorship but that there are people who have hopes and dreams like myself, my mother and my sister." Kim grew up during the great famine of 1990's, at the age of 12 he saw his father starve to death, his mother disappeared and his sister fled to China to search for food. He arrived in the US in 2007 as a refugee. He is still searching his sister. Right after Kim's testimony a North Korean delegated disrupted the meeting despite the insistence of the host of the event –including US ambassador Samantha Power - to wait for the proper moment to intervene. South Korean ambassador Oh Joon said "the delegation of the DPRK today disappointed us. They were interrupting the process. They should have spoken when they were given a chance. So, I'm very disappointed. I think it's a pity." US ambassador Samantha Power said "this delegation (DPRK) was informed before this event started that it would have occasion to speak as soon as we've heard from the defectors who were the center piece of today's event; and unfortunately as you heard the delegation chose instead to try to drown out the testimony of these panelists and I will say it must be chilling for those of you have been subjected to the terror of the regime to be confronted with bullying and disruption and the kind of behavior that we saw today." At the event, moderated by award-winning author and journalist Barbara Demick, there were 23 North Korean defectors in attendance, including panelists Joseph Kim, Jay Jo, and Kim Hye-Sook.

UN issues urgent appeal for $98 million in DPRK humanitarian aid
The United Nations today (15 August) said US$98 million were urgently needed to address critical humanitarian needs in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), where some 2.4 million people need regular food assistance. The funds would be used for food and agricultural support, health and nutrition services, and water and sanitation interventions for the remainder of the year. The humanitarian community in the DPRK has consistently argued that the provision of support should be based on humanitarian needs and not on political and security considerations, and that millions of people will continue to suffer without international assistance. United Nations Resident Coordinator in the DPRK told UNTV during an interview that the funding was an "urgent issue" and that it was important to "remind and inform that the member states, the donors that there is a humanitarian need that should not be influenced by political imperatives." Responding to whether the sanctions against the DPRK over its nuclear programme were also responsible for the urgent needs the country is experiencing Isaczai said that "We cannot deny the fact that -given the recent events- the lack of progress on political front do influence donors behaviour in terms of funding." According to the United Nations Office of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) some 16 million people in the DPRK currently remain chronically food insecure and highly vulnerable to food production gaps and over the past decade the UN and its partners have seen a dramatic reduction in donor support to the country Isaczai said that the lack of funding had affected for example World Food Program (WFP) projects such as biscuit factories. He said that five of them had to close because the WFP could not provide ingredients such as milk, oil and ghee and to produce the biscuits, and this affected a lot of school children in nutritional terms. A better harvest in 2012 led to an improvement in the overall food security situation in the DPRK, however, insufficient diversity in children's diets remain serious concerns. Isaczai said "We need to expand the diversity of farming to include soy beans, protein rich agriculture products and produce vegetables, fruits in order to improve the nutrition value of their food chain and food supply." Chronic under-nutrition continued to be a public health problem in the country, and was a major underlying cause of maternal and child mortality, and adding to that the lack of medical supplies and equipment meant that the health care system was unable to meet basic needs, while water and heating infrastructure is in need of repair. According to the according to the 2012 National Nutrition Survey malnutrition rates, although lower than other years, continued to be of great concern with a stunting rate among children under five at 27.9 per cent and 4 per cent who are acutely malnourished. Isaczai said stressed "we need to continue to provide humanitarian assistance because stunting is a major problem. I mean 28 percent is still a big number and is very visible on the streets of the Country." He also noted that by providing funding for humanitarian purposes "we are sending a very strong message to the Korean public that the world cares about them and that we are not going to mix it to agenda"

DPRK clashes with Japan, EU on UN human rights report
The Human Rights Commission today (28 March) asked the General Assembly to refer the human rights situation in the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) to the Security Council for possible referral to international criminal justice tribunals. The recommendation came in a resolution supported by 30 of the Council's members and opposed by six, with eleven countries abstaining. Submitted by the European Union and Japan, the resolution is a follow-up to a report prepared by a Council-appointed Commission of Inquiry. Introducing the resolution, Takashi Okada of Japan said his country remained deeply concerned about the long-standing, ongoing, systematic, widespread and gross human rights violations in the DPRK, which had been documented in detail in the Commission of Inquiry's report. He recalled that the report underlined that in many instances, the violations constituted crimes against humanity, and that the perpetrators remained unpunished. Okada said Japan strongly believed that the international community, including the UN was duty bound to respond to the report in order to urgently address the situation. The report includes a recommendation for the General Assembly to submit the inquiry body's report to the Security Council for its consideration and appropriate action. That action, the resolution suggested, should include referring the matter to the appropriate criminal justice mechanism. So See Pyong of the DPRK categorically and resolutely rejected the draft resolution. He accused the European Union and Japan of turning the Human Rights Council into a stage of political confrontation, by submitting a resolution in defiance of the country's demand for genuine dialogue. So said his country was the victim of a "human rights clamour" escalated by the United States and other hostile forces. The clamour was based on fabrications aimed at undermining the DPRK's ideology and eliminating its social system.

WFP head Cousin visits North Korea
The executive director of World Food Programme (WFP) Ertharin Cousin visited the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK )to get better understanding of the humanitarian needs and food security situation in the country, as well as challenges facing the programme's work. Cousin said that her visit came at the time when the Program's operation in DPRK is severely underfunded -- only 24% of funds needed are provided. WFP's work in the DPRK focuses on the nutritional needs of children, as well as women who are pregnant or breastfeeding, many of whom are chronically malnourished due to a diet poor in micronutrients, protein and fats. WFP provides specialized nutritious food to children in hospitals, baby homes, nurseries and schools, including Super Cereal - a kind of fortified blended food - and high-energy biscuits.

Children in hospital, school in Wonsan, North Korea
Most of the People's Republic of Korea is mountainous. Only a fifth of the land in the People's Republic can be used to grow food. With few international trading partners from which to buy the rest, chronic malnutrition is the biggest threat to people here. Malnutrition causes the most harm to the most vulnerable. If an infant under two is malnourished there is a good chance he or she will never grow to reach full potential. An assessment by WFP and the government showed almost 19 percent of under-twos were acutely malnourished. Fifteen percent is already considered an emergency. In this school in the eastern city of Wonsan many children are small for their age. Kim Gwang Song is 13 years old, but he looks about eight. . WFP says the effect of hunger on a community's productivity creates a vicious cycle, so the agency is putting children first.
