This Monday, May 30, North Korea—a rogue regime that threatens to attack others with nuclear weapons—will become Chair of the UN-backed Conference on Disarmament.
CIVIL SOCIETY APPEAL TO PROTEST NORTH KOREA AS CHAIR OF CONFERENCE OF DISARMAMENT
The undersigned non-governmental and human rights organizations call on UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, the United States, the European Union and all other democracies to strongly protest North Korea's absurd chairmanship of the UN-backed Conference on Disarmament, starting on May 30, 2022, and for all ambassadors to walk out during the four weeks of the rogue regime's presidency.
North Korea is a country that threatens to attack other UN member states with missiles, and that commits atrocities against its own people. Torture and starvation are routine in North Korean political prison camps where an estimated 100,000 people are held in what is one of the world’s direst human-rights situations.
