Trump urges to push North Korea to end slavery at Singapore summit
United States President Donald Trump should press Pyongyang to end state-imposed slavery and forced labor, said North Korean defectors ahead of a historic summit between the leaders of both countries.

 

With an estimated 1.1 million people—or one in 20 citizens—living in slavery, North Korea was ranked the worst country in the world in terms of prevalence in the 2016 Global Slavery Index by the rights group Walk Free Foundation.

 

Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are due on Tuesday for the first ever face-to-face meeting by leaders of the two nations, with the focus on Pyongyang's nuclear weapons and peace on the Korean Peninsula.
