Child rights and welfare needed to be ensured

Date: 27/11/2020 | Source: Pyongyang Times | Read original version at source

November 20 this year marked the 31st anniversary of the adoption of the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

Adopted at the 44th session of the UN General Assembly in 1989, the convention came into effect in September 1990.

The convention was adopted to enact international laws on fundamental rights for children in order to make their parents, social organizations and all governments recognize its principle and the rights of children reflected on it and take measures for its implementation, while providing those requiring special protection with the rights stipulated in the convention.

Many countries have signed the convention since its adoption.

The DPRK signed the convention on September 21 1990.

It puts forward children as the king of the country and shows primary concern over the work regarding it as a nationwide undertaking to provide them with material and social conditions for ensuring their rights and promoting their well-being.

Each province has its own maternity hospital, especially the Pyongyang Maternity Hospital which is called the palace for babies, and children’s palaces and halls and juvenile sports schools are seen in different parts of the country, where they develop their talents to their heart’s content.

Nurseries, kindergartens and schools are constructed in best places whenever new streets and villages are built and the state keeps bestowing benefits and taking measures to improve their health and nutrition.
