Due to the decrease in harvest in North Korea, the country needs about 640 thousand tons of grain. The UN has published a report on this topic, saying that the food security of the DPRK is a big problem.
The report says that the shortage in grain has grown by more than 100 thousand tons since last year. It was expected to overcome the lack due to imports and help of other countries.
According to the UN, North Korea is one of the 40 countries in need of food aid assistance.
