India to send 1300 tons pulses aid to North Korea

NEW DELHI (Commodity Online) : With six million people in North Korea are on the verge of starvation, India is extending a helping hand by providing 1300 tons pulses aid worth $1 million (Rs 4.5 crore).

The aid will be handed out through the United Nations World Food Programme, reported http://www.telegraphindia.com.

Falling domestic production and dwindling international aid has ensured less of food supply in North Korea.

In May, the country’s Public Distribution System is expected to run out of food. US and other countries had stopped food aid citing nuclear ambitions of North Korea.

In 1990s, nearly one million people starved to death in North Korea in a famine.
