With a mooted meeting between Presidents Trump and Kim Jong-Un, Christians may feel they can relax their prayers for North Korea, but there is no sign of a relaxation of state aggression against Christians.
Campaigner Paul Robinson, CEO of Release International, said, “The threat of extermination is the daily reality for North Korean Christians. North Korea doesn’t just persecute Christians – it executes them.”
Of the estimated 100,000 Christians in North Korea, 30,000 have been sent to concentration camps on the charge of conspiring against the state. Except for propaganda purposes, Christian activity is completely prohibited.
Dr Eric Foley, from Voice of the Martyrs Korea, urges Christians to pray for a change of heart for the regime: “Underground Christians are praying that Kim Jong-Un will come to know Christ.”
