  UN OHCHR to open field office in Seoul to monitor human rights conditions in North Korea
A UN human rights office, to monitor human rights conditions in North Korea will be set up in South Korea.
The Geneva-based Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights said Wednesday that its Field Based Structure will be set up in Seoul.
The South Korean government has already given its approval.
The decision to open the Seoul office was made after the UN council adopted a report in March denouncing North Korea's systematic human rights violations.
The field office will be operated independently according to UN's basic principles.
It is expected to be set up in the latter half of this year.
