UNICEF confident sanctions will not inhibit medicine deliveries to N. Korea

UN responds to DPRK claims that aid shipments have been slowed due to sanctions

UNICEF on Wednesday said it was confident it can arrange and deliver humanitarian aid to fight tuberculosis and malaria in North Korea, despite claims from the DPRK that UN sanctions have hindered the delivery of crucial medicines made earlier in June.

On June 16, North Korean media reported on a statement from the country's Foreign Ministry which outlined how the current sanctions regime hinders humanitarian efforts in the DPRK.
