Dime con quien andas ...

In a move that could best be described as surprising, the United Nations has passed a resolution expressing "very serious concern" at reports of widespread human rights violations in North Korea.

Surprising because motions attacking human right abuses by totalitarian regimes of the supposed Left are rarely adopted by the world body.

Still, the resolution is welcomed, especially since it was passed 101 votes to 22, with 59 abstentions, according to this Associated Press report.

Support for the motion came from the European Union, the US and most other democracies.

It was opposed by the usual suspects: countries such as Iran, Sudan, Syria and Zimbabwe. And Cuba, of course.
