Pyongyang, January 12 (KCNA) — The World Food Program officially made public an appeal on Jan. 6 concerning another aid program of some 657,000 tons of food worth d378 million to the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea this year.
The spokesman for the DPRK Measure Committee for Recovering from Flood Damage was interviewed by KCNA today over the appeal.
The spokesman said:
We feel grateful to the WFP and other international organizations, various countries and non-governmental organizations for their sympathy with and humanitarian assistance including food to the Korean people, who have temporarily suffered food shortage caused by natural disasters which hit the country repeatedly in a few years.
This year’s humanitarian food aid by the WFP’s appeal will encourage the Korean people in their efforts for recovering from the disasters as early as possible.
Though the damage and its consequences are serious, we will make all efforts to fully solve the acute food problem by themselves by doing farming well this year.
