Human rights in N. Korea will not go unaddressed: S. Korea human rights chief Updated: 2018-11-08 03:12:42 KST

As inter-Korean cooperation moves forward, the issue of human rights in North Korea will not be neglected.
That's what the chief of Seoul's human rights commission said Wednesday.
Speaking at a parliamentary audit, Choi Young-ae said a foundation to address human rights in the North should be launched as soon as possible.
The foundation in question would conduct research on the status of human rights in the regime and help civic groups improve conditions there.
But its launch has been delayed by partisan differences.
North Korea has been pushing for South Korea to scrap plans for the foundation as well as its law on North Korean human rights which went into effect two years ago.
