Catholic Cardinal urges North Korea to improve human rights

Cardinal Nicholas Cheong Jin-suk has called on North Korea to take measures to improve the human rights and living conditions of its people.

“North Korea is restricting freedom and truth while failing to provide the people with rights to live humanly without worrying about survival,” Cheong said in an exclusive New Year interview with The Korea Times.

He urged North Korean leaders to exert efforts to promote peace on the Korean Peninsula and make its people happier.
