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.

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.

US Ambassador Susan Rice speaks on new sanctions against North Korea
Ambassador Susan Rice of the United States today (5 March) announced the drafting of a new US -- China tabled resolution that would "deliver a credible and strong response" to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) latest nuclear test. Rice said the draft resolution "builds upon, strengthens, and significantly expands the scope of the strong UN sanctions already in place." According to media reports citing the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the Government of DPRK conducted its third, long-threatened nuclear test on 12 February. The Security Council, after an emergency closed-door session on that day, issued a statement saying that the test constituted a grave violation of relevant resolutions adopted by the 15-member body. The US Ambassador told reporters gathered outside the Security Council that the DPRK "will be subject to some of the toughest sanctions imposed by the United Nations," adding that "the breadth and scope of these sanctions is exceptional and demonstrates the strength of the international community's commitment to denuclearization and the demand that North Korea comply with its international obligations." Rice said she hoped for a unanimous adoption later this week. She noted that there will be provisions in the text of the resolution that will "enhance and strengthen" the role of the Panel of Experts on the Democratic People's Republic of Korea in the DPRK Sanctions Committee in terms of implementation. The sanctions, she said, would target North Korean diplomats and banking activities, including cash transfers, and pledges to take further measures if the DPRK carries out another test. The latest test, which was confirmed by seismic evidence picked up by the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization's (CTBTO) monitoring stations, was in violation of sanctions imposed on DPRK by the Council following nuclear tests in 2006 and 2009, including a ban on the import of nuclear and missile technology. The sanctions had been further tightened last month in a unanimous decision by the Council after DPRK reportedly launched a long-range Unha-3 rocket from its west coast in December 2012.

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.

Ri Tong Il speaks at the United Nations
The North Korean deputy ambassador Ri Tong Il said today (24 Mar) that the United States is undermining the dialogue between his country and South Korea. Speaking to reporters in United Nations Headquarters in New York, he said "at the very moment when the representatives of the North and South of Korea were sitting together at the table of dialogue to discuss the issue of separated families reunion -- which we broadly accepted the request -- the US made another provocation at that time by flying over into South Korea the nuclear weapon carrying B52 strategy bombers, thereby creating another nuclear blackmail against our nation and undermining the climate of change." He stressed "as long as the US is continuing nuclear blackmails against the DPRK, United States should clearly know the fact that additional measures will continue to be taken by the DPRK in order to demonstrate the power of self-defensive nuclear deterrent." Asked about the human rights situation in his country, the North Korean ambassador said "the National Defense Commission on the 14th of March, as I told you, made a statement and one of the important aspects is that the US should immediately stop all the human rights conspiracies against the DPRK." Last week, the Commission of Inquiry on human rights in North Korea presented its report to the UN Human Rights Council in which it documents a "disturbing array of crimes against humanity". The findings were based on testimony from hundreds of victims, defectors and witnesses.

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.

News conference on human rights in DPRK
The Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), Marzuki Darusman, told reporters today (28 Oct) that the report of the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the DPRK "incontrovertibly, and on reasonable grounds, have been able to establish that denial of human rights in the DPRK amount to crimes against humanity." Darusman, who had earlier presented his report to the General Assembly's Third Committee, said that referral to the International Criminal Court (ICC) "is not the only route that the Commission had recommended in its report." He said the report also envisages the possibility of addressing the issue through "standing mechanisms within the UN in the form of tribunals that could be established to address a specific situation." Regarding the possibility of being allowed by the government of the DPRK to visit the country, the Special Rapporteur said "any visit would have to be undertaken with a view to allow the Rapporteur access into any location, institution which would be a primary concern of the international community." Regarding recent concessions by the government to the DPRK, he said it was "interesting that these actions or these movements have taken place only after the Commission of Inquiry's report. I don't think it is incidental. I don't think it's something that is not related to that." On 21 March 2013, at its 22nd session, the United Nations Human Rights Council established the Commission of Inquiry on Human Rights in the DPRK. Resolution A/HRC/RES/22/13 mandates the body to investigate the systematic, widespread and grave violations of human rights in the country, with a view to ensuring full accountability, in particular for violations which may amount to crimes against humanity. Special rapporteurs are appointed by the Geneva-based Council to examine and report back on a country situation or a specific human rights theme. The positions are honorary and the experts are not UN staff, nor are they paid for their work.

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.

South Korean Ambassador to UN on DPRK missile launches
Following last month's missile launches by the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK), South Korean Ambassador Oh Joon today (2 May) said that the Security Council is "ready to deal with the DPRK if there are any further new provocations." Oh Joon, who is the Permanent Representative of the Republic of Korea and holds the Presidency of the Security Council for the month of May, recalled that "Member States all condemned those launches" and added that "Council Members are concerned about the situation." Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon last week expressed concern about the successive reports of new launches of ballistic missiles by the Democratic DPRK, which reportedly test fired two medium-range ballistic missiles from a site north of the capital, Pyongyang, into the sea off its eastern coast. Several launches of short-range ballistics have been conducted in recent weeks, according to media reports.
