2. Q&A

Q) Are there any notable trends in the North ahead of its founding anniversary of the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army?

A) There is nothing to confirm regarding developments in the North on the occasion of April 25.

Q) It has been reported that North Korean vice-premier Ri Chol Man, who is responsible of the North’s agricultural sector, is visiting Russia. How does the Ministry evaluate the current food shortage situation in North Korea, and what exchanges and cooperation is expected with Russia?

A) The Ministry has nothing to confirm on matters concerning Russia and North Korea unless there is an official announcement made by the two countries.

North Korea’s crop production last year was relatively good. However, as the North suffers a chronic food shortage, supply always falls short of its demand. Consequently, the food situation is expected to remain dim.
