We most recently raised the issue of non-refoulement of North Korean refugees with the Chinese authorities at the UK-China Human Rights Dialogue in Beijing on 27 June.
We restated our belief that North Korean refugees fleeing the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) should be treated as such under the 1951 refugee convention.
We are aware of reports that those returned to the DPRK have been subject to mistreatment by the authorities. The UK continues to raise our human rights concerns directly with the DPRK regime through our bilateral engagement and in international fora.
