A U.S. Christian aid organization received a humanitarian exemption from the UN earlier this month to work on clean drinking water project in North Korea, according to the UN Security Council 1718 sanctions committee.

In a letter dated April 4 but only released publicly in recent days, the UN committee granted an exemption for a project by the Love North Korea Ministries (LNKM) organization “aimed at improving access to clean drinking water in the Rason region.”
