Overseas Network, June 14, DPRK China News Agency reported on the 14th that the Vietnamese government provided food aid to the DPRK, and the related goods arrived at Nanpu Port on the west coast of the DPRK on the 13th.
The article evaluates that the Vietnamese governments food aid to the DPRK is conducive to the development of friendly cooperative relations between the DPRK and Vietnam, which have a long history.
The report did not mention the types and scale of food aid.
According to the UN news website, a food safety assessment released by the United Nations on May 3 shows that this year, North Korea suffered the worst food failure in 10 years, with more than 10 million people facing serious food shortage.
The assessment was prepared by FAO and WFP on the basis of two field visits to the DPRK in November 2018 and April this year. The two agencies recommended that the urgent needs of the DPRK be met by expanding the scale of food aid, while increasing the import of fertilizers, modern agricultural tools and seeds, and promoting disaster reduction measures, so as to provide long-term support for agricultural production.
