Reports emanating from U.S. officials have suggested that the U.S. will back the establishment of a Commission of Inquiry into crimes against humanity in North Korea at the 22nd session of the UN Human Rights Council which starts later this month.

The confirmation has not been yet made public officially by the U.S. as, according to the officials, they are awaiting for international consensus on the details of the inquiry before moving ahead.

If the U.S. does support a COI, they will become the fourth major party to do so following the Japanese, Australian and the European parliaments' decisions to publicly state their support for the establishment of a COI
