According to government television, North Korea is facing a “devastating famine,” which has warned of an oncoming “food catastrophe.”

According to a UN researcher, North Koreans are at risk of starvation as a result of sanctions and Covid restrictions imposed by Kim Jong-un.

North Korea, according to a UN expert, is facing a catastrophic famine as a result of self-imposed Covid restrictions and severe UN sanctions.

Kim Jong-leadership un’s has been in significant economic difficulties since maintaining a rigorous Covid blockade last year, with trade with China grinding to a halt.

Furthermore, Pyongyang’s refusal to stop its nuclear weapons program has prompted the United Nations to apply sanctions, worsening an already terrible situation.

The state-run television network and propaganda machine, KCTV, warned in June of a potential “food crisis” in the agricultural sector, which is already failing to feed large sections of the population.

Even the country’s authoritarian leader admitted that the situation was “getting tense” that month.

UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights Tomas Ojea Quintana presented a report yesterday that exposed the full scale of the situation and pleaded for UN sanctions to be withdrawn in order to save lives.

Ordinary people are “struggling to live a life of dignity on a daily basis,” he added, adding that “the most vulnerable children and the elderly are at risk of hunger.”

“Sanctions imposed by the United Nations Security Council should be reviewed and repealed as necessary to allow humanitarian and life-saving aid,” he concluded.

This comes three months after the UN’s Food and Agricultural Organization issued a “severe lean time” warning, citing an 860,000-tonne food shortage this year.

Relations between North Korea and the rest of the world have been extremely tense since the breakdown of talks between Pyongyang and Washington in 2019.

Kim Jong-un blamed the US for the tensions on the Korean peninsula during a showcase event for his new ballistic missiles earlier this week.

As he stood in front of his massive arsenal, the tyrant proclaimed, “The United States has recently been providing regular hints that it is not hostile to our country, but there is no behavioural foundation to presume that it is not.”

He went on to claim that developing a “invincible military capability” was his regime’s present goal.

This follows the rogue nation’s recent testing of a number of weapons, including the ballistic Hwasong-8 missile, which was launched late last month.
