CLAIM: U.S. won’t bring up North Korea’s human rights issues at Singapore summit
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by NBCNews.com:
WASHINGTON — Wounded from torture and starving, Grace Jo’s father died on a train heading to a North Korean prison camp, a fellow inmate told his family. His crime: illegally possessing a bag of rice during the 1990s famine.
Jo escaped across the river to China in 1998, and is now a U.S. citizen and college student in suburban Washington. She is deeply concerned that President Donald Trump is preparing to make peace with the “monster,” as she put it, who runs her native country.
“He should not make a deal with terrorists,” Jo told NBC News. “This regime will never give up its nuclear development.”
The article goes on to state the following:
When Trump meets Kim Jong Un in Singapore on Tuesday, he will be sitting down with the leader of one of the most brutal and repressive regimes in modern history — a country that has committed “unspeakable atrocities” on a vast scale in a manner reminiscent of Nazi Germany, according to a 2014 United Nations investigation.
But two administration officials tell NBC News the U.S. has decided not to bring up human rights at the summit. And Trump has made clear he would be willing to offer security guarantees and financial aid to Kim if he gives up his nuclear arsenal.
