Angelina Jolie Preached About Refugees in 'Salt' Tour


While visiting Korea to promote the film she spared time to meet the officials at United Nations' refugee agency in Seoul and talked about her concern.

Angelina Jolie used her promotional tour for new movie "Salt" to do some good when the publicity whirlwind stopped in Korea on Wednesday, July 28 - she spent time highlighting the plight of North Korean refugees. The Hollywood actress has been traveling the world plugging the new spy movie, taking in Russia, Japan and Korea in the space of a few days.

But Jolie, who is a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations (U.N.), took time out from her busy schedule to meet with officials at the U.N.'s refugee agency in the South Korean capital of Seoul. The Oscar-winner reveals she learned a lot about the plight of migrants who flee the separate state of North Korea and are often persecuted when they are sent back there.

She tells the Yonhap news agency, "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 know all of you are (concerned), as well, and you have been doing a great deal to help them... I'm just in solidarity with all of you. There's a lot of news about tension between the North and the South, but there's not much about how much care and support they continue to give to North Korea."
