US exports over $200K in goods to North Korea, likely humanitarian aid

Census Bureau data shows multiple shipments of apparent private aid since November, the first in seven years

The U.S. has exported goods to North Korea for the first time in seven years, according to U.S. government data, in what appears to have been a series of private aid shipments worth over $200,000.

The resumption of exports comes as the DPRK keeps its borders shut to humanitarian workers and as Seoul reported that there was no cross-border trade between the two Koreas last year.
