UN committee condemns North Korea for building missiles as people starve

A key UN committee has approved a resolution condemning North Korea for diverting its resources to pursue nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles instead of helping its people, over half of whom are in need of food and medical care.

Here’s the evidence. The resolution, co-sponsored by 61 countries, condemns North Korea for “diverting its resources into pursuing nuclear weapons and ballistic missiles over the welfare of its people.” The measure condemned “the long-standing and ongoing systematic, widespread and gross violations of human rights” in North Korea, and said those violations have led to severe hunger and malnutrition.
