North Korea: Food Shortages

Volume 702: debated on Thursday 26 June 2008

asked Her Majesty's Government:

What assessment they have made of the report by the Peterson Institute for International Economics on food shortages in North Korea. [HL4129]

The Department for International Development (DfID) has not made an assessment of the report by the Peterson Institute. We are waiting for the result from the independent assessment currently being carried out by the World Food Programme. The results of this should be available in early July.
