UN falling short in N. Korea aid for 2019; needs US$ 111 million Updated: 2018-12-05 14:47:35 KST

The United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs says aid to North Korea next year will require some 1-hundred-and-11 million U.S. dollars, and so far they've got less than a quarter of that.
According to its "Global Humanitarian Overview 2019," the estimated amount is similar to this year's figures aimed at helping about 6 million people in the regime.
It reported that while the sanctions on Pyeongyang have exceptions for humanitarian assistance, such work has been distrupted by the North's cutoff from the banking system, a breakdown in the supply chain and delays in transporting goods to the North.
