Press Release (November 15)

 

Our position on the Hankyoreh s news article (Nov. 15) titled Hanawon, a 12-week jail for North Korean refugees

 

 

With more than 20,000 North Korean refugees defecting to South Korea, it is time for the people in the South to embrace them as our neighbors and cooperate in supporting them.

 

l       The Government has made various efforts to help them to successfully settle in our society.

 

l       For this reason, we feel deep regret that our policies and institutions to assist North Korean defectors were reported with inappropriate words like jail and different facts by the Hankyoreh.

 

 

Ministry of Unification
