Italy granted UN sanctions exemption to fund Food Security Office in Pyongyang

Over 1 million euros to be transferred for Italian firm’s technical support

The UN Security Council (UNSC) committee in charge of sanctions on North Korea has granted a humanitarian exemption allowing the transfer of funds into the DPRK for an Italian company’s work in food-related matters. 

The funds will be used for international and local staff as well as operating costs inside the country at the European Commission (EC)-funded Food Security Office (FSO) in Pyongyang, for work by the firm Agriconsulting Europe SA (AESA).
