The UK welcomes the recent UN Group of Independent Experts report on accountability for those who commit human rights violations in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea's (DPRK). We support further work on their recommendations by the Special Rapporteur on DPRK Human Rights and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to ensure the most effective framework for accountability can be established.
