star this property answer text <p>The Government regularly raises with China the treatment of North Korean refugees. We have made clear that people who have escaped from North Korea are entitled to protection under the International Convention relating to the Status of Refugees (1951) and the Protocol Relating to the Status of Refugees (1967). We have also made clear that the Chinese government should allow people from the Democratic People's Republic of Korea safe passage to resettlement in third countries; and we encourage the Chinese government to work with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees to facilitate this. We expect China, like all countries, to comply fully with its obligations under international human rights conventions. The Minister of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, my right hon. Friend the Member for East Devon (Mr Swire), raised these issues with the Chinese Permanent Representative in Geneva in June 2014.</p> more like this
