UN approves ROK province’s plan to send water purification aid to North Korea

But Gyeonggi Province must still receive OK from unification ministry before it can ship goods worth more than $500K

The U.N. Security Council (UNSC) has approved a sanctions exemption request from South Korea’s Gyeonggi Province to ship aid to North Korea, according to a notice posted by the U.N.

But Seoul’s unification ministry told NK News that despite receiving the green light from the UNSC, the province did not request approval from the ROK government to send the materials for a water purification plant as required by law.
