Canada FM urges US, North Korea to step back

North Korea Jailed Canadian

A Canadian pastor released from prison in North Korea this week is planning to attend a church service in Mississauga, Ont., on Sunday.

The South Korean-born pastor had been accused of subversive acts against Pyongyang, an allegation Canadian authorities strongly denied.

"Canada is very clear in condemning the actions of North Korea", she said.

It is thanks to the diplomatic efforts of the federal government and the Sweden he was released. "There is a long way to go in terms of Reverend Lim's healing".

In direct conversations with North Korea and through China, Freeland said Canada sought to "get North Korea to understand that it must get off this path, which is so destructive for North Korea and the world". Hyeong Soo Lim suffers from high blood pressure and has lost a lot of weight since his capture.

It's possible the regime is being more cautious with Mr. Lim's health problems, Mr. Denney said.

That could be an area of productive conversations with the United States, given the US administration's focus on making it easier to do business, Freeland said. "It catalyzed discussions over additional human-rights-focused sanctions and prompted countries to re-evaluate their policies on tourism to the North", said Andrea Berger, senior research associate at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies.

"He is doing very well, considering everything he has gone through", he said.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada stands by the United States, but called for a de-escalation in the war of words with North Korea. "When they are threatened, we are there".
