While Angelina Jolie was in Seoul, South Korea to promote Salt, the actress had the opportunity to learn about North Korean defectors from officials in the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees!
“They spoke a lot about the concerns about people being persecuted when they are sent back to North Korea. I’m very concerned about the people. I learned today about them gaining citizenship and crossing into South Korea. The UNHCR practices quiet diplomacy in which they do more than they talk about.”
Could they have chosen anyone better to be a goodwill ambassador?
