Urgent action needed to ensure North Korea’s food security in April, says leaked internal document

Dagyum Ji, writing in NK News (April 16th, 2019), reports that a leaked internal DPRK memo stressed the “dangerousness” of current food supply situation.

He says that a document obtained by NK News last week showed that the North Korean government believes urgent action will be needed to ensure food security for the country in April. This seems, in part, because grain output in 2018 has reportedly fallen by 10% compared to the previous year.

The undated Korean-language memo carrying the emblem of the DPRK Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said that the crop yields in 2018 had amounted to 4,951,000 tons, 503,000 tons less than the previous year.
