As the campaign proceeds I continue moving further towards Barack Obama. And now Barack Obama has thrown his support towards the most important issue to me, North Korean human rights.
His letter to the Korean Church Coalition for North Korea Freedom (KCC) can be found here. Below I have quoted an excerpt.
As we work to ease tensions and improve security on the Korean Peninsula, we must remember one of history’s most important lessons: that true and lasting peace can only be built on a foundation of human rights. North Koreans should not have to flee their country just to enjoy the most basic rights of life, liberty, and conscience. When they do leave, they should not be forced back to persecution; they should have the protection to which refugees are entitled under international law. These issues should be on the table when we talk to countries in the region, including China.
