North Korea Envoy To UN: ‘Mind Your Own Business’

At a United Nations human rights meeting Friday in Geneva a North Korea envoy told diplomats to “mind your own business” during a vote to punish the regime for crimes against humanity.

The comment drew laughter from those in attendance, underscoring the lack of authority the UN human rights bureaucracy actually has over rogue regimes. But the violation, themselves, are no laughing matter. Back in Feb., a United Nations report called for an international criminal investigation into human rights violations by the oppressive-leftist North Korean regime.

The three-member panel found myriad evidence of human rights crimes, such as “extermination,” crimes against humanity, against starving populations and a widespread campaign of abductions of individuals in South Korea and Japan.

The embarrassing event came as the UN Human Rights Council voted for actions against the rogue regime for crimes investigators likened to Nazi-style atrocities, Reuters reported.  Responsibility for the crimes reportedly reach as high as the Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un, the report said.

Those at the UN human rights meeting admitted that despite efforts, charges against Kim are unlikely to actually come down. The typical actors are opposed to such action. China and Russia, which have seats on the U.N. Human Rights Council, both voted against the resolution.

So Se Pyong, the ambassador from Pyongyang, told the group in attendance that “cooperation can never be compatible with confrontation.”

“In the DPRK, we have a proverb saying ‘Mind your own business’,” So said, “which means that one needs to see his or her face in the mirror to check how nasty it is before talking about the others.”
