"Mr President, the illegal nuclear tests conducted by North Korea last month clearly threaten regional and international security, and I therefore support tougher trade sanctions on the government there. However, there is a greater tragedy underlying recent developments. Hidden behind North Korea’s never-ending pursuit of nuclear weapons is the reality that much of its population has been deprived of food and many are living in forced labour camps. They are impoverished and alone. The World Watch List ranks North Korea as the most difficult place on earth to be a Christian, with arrest and torture commonplace. This persecution is wholly unacceptable. Parliament should use this debate today to promote the fundamental rights of freedom of association and religion. It should give a voice to the thousands of North Koreans who refuse to give up hope that one day their faith may be recognised. Vice-President/High Representative, I am interested in your idea of a commission of inquiry and I would be grateful if, in your summing up, you could elaborate on how you see this working."@en1
