A broad left-right group of organizations consisting of various human rights and faith-based organizations and leaders of the Korean-American community issued an 18-point Statement of Principles in a press conference at the National Press Club.

The group indicated its strong support for a Helsinki-based approach to U.S.-North Korea policy and for recent pro-human rights actions of the Bush administration. The coalition rejects the current policy options under debate, which focus on military responses and disarmament negotiations that exclude consideration of human rights issues.

The signatories include the Open Society Policy Center. To see the full statement and complete list of signatories click the PDF to view.
