The dire human rights situation in North Korea will be in the spotlight at the UN Human Rights Council headquarters in Geneva on Thursday.
Finding ways to persuade the North to improve the way it treats its people will be the focus of the Universal Periodic Review.
The review studies the human rights situations in all UN member countries every four years, and the North is a repeat offender.
In a written report submitted to the UN ahead of the review, North Korea said it was making efforts to address its problems through laws to protect the underprivileged.
After the review is over, the UN Human Rights Council will adopt a summary, along with recommendations for the regime.
