On Wednesday afternoon, ECR MEP Witold Waszczykowski together with EPP MEP Rasa Juknevičienė and the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea will host an online event focusing on global implications of North Korea’s expanding reach.
North Korea has long been a subject of international concern due to its expanding nuclear, missile programs, and its abhorrent human rights record. The event will explore the recently increased military cooperation between North Korea and Russia, including potential weapons deals, and its implications for international peace and security. By advancing the proposal for a “human rights up front” approach towards North Korea, the event aims to propose and consolidate a policy strategy for advancing human rights to achieve international security and denuclearisation.
The event will be held online on 29 November at 16:00 CET and 10:00 EST.
