In 2014, a United Nations commission of inquiry concluded that China was enabling North Korea to commit crimes against humanity by forcibly returning asylum seekers to conditions of danger.

Earlier, President of the United States, Donald Trump, had in several occasion threatened North Korea of consequences if it pursued the nuclear tests any further.

The South Korean government confirmed the report and welcomed the move by the North.

The Korean Central News Agency (KCNA) said late Thursday that according to a relevant institution, a South Korean fishing boat was captured for deliberately intruding into the DPRK waters for fishing.

CIA chief Mike Pompeo said last week North Korea could be only months away from developing the ability to hit the United States with nuclear weapons, a scenario Trump has vowed to prevent.

Speaking about Trump's historic visit to the region in November, a senior U.S. official said the administration made a "good faith effort" to signal to North Korea that the door was open to dialogue.
