We continue to urge the DPRK to uphold its human rights obligations and engage substantively with the international community on freedom of religion in North Korea. We work with partners in international fora, such as the UN General Assembly and Human Rights Council, to highlight this and other human rights concerns. We raise our concerns directly with the North Korean Embassy in London and through our Embassy in Pyongyang. We also regularly engage with NGOs on human rights issues in the DPRK.
