Briefing notes

North Koreans leave China

15 March 2002

UNHCR is pleased that Spanish and Chinese authorities quickly found a humanitarian solution for the 25 North Korean asylum seekers who spent yesterday and part of today at the Spanish Embassy in Beijing. We understand they are now en route to the Philippines. We appreciate the efforts of the two governments to reach a speedy conclusion.
