Child nutrition project granted exemption from UN sanctions on North Korea
Exemption is third for Première Urgence Internationale this year

The French NGO Première Urgence Internationale (PUI) was earlier in the month granted its third UN sanctions exemption for humanitarian aid work in North Korea, a UN Committee website showed over the weekend.

In a letter uploaded to the website of the UN Security Council (UNSC) 1718 Committee on Friday, PUI was granted permission to ship sanctioned items to the DPRK for projects aimed at improving goat milk production.
