Less than 20 percent of UN member countries yet to submit reports on repatriating N. Koreans: UN Updated: 2021-11-23 11:38:26 KST

A UN-imposed deadline to repatriate North Korean workers back to their home country expired two years ago, however less than 20 percent of member nations have submitted reports.
According to the website for the UN Security Council Sanctions Committee on North Korea, only 37 out of around 190 member countries filed either an interim or final report in line with sanctions as of Monday.
And these countries, including the U.S., South Korea and France, had no North Korean workers to send home to begin with.
In 2017, the UN Security Council adopted a resolution requiring member countries to repatriate all North Koreans earning income in their jurisdiction within two years and to submit final reports by March 2020.
