International sanctions against North Korea on its nuclear and missile programs do not cover technical humanitarian activities. During the summer, the United Nations adopted an American proposal to streamline the approval of support transport.

Talks between the United States and North Korea have been stopped for months after the historic june meeting in Singapore between North Korea’s leader Kim Jong Un and US President Donald Trump. Plans for a second meeting at the beginning of next year are at work, according to US officials.

North Korea recently accused the United States of “blocking the way to nuclear power” forever by strengthening sanctions in the deadlock.

But relief groups say a number of factors, including UN sanctions that have led to the decline in banking and shipping operations with Pyongyang, and a travel ban against US citizens to the country has closed its operations in North Korea.

Part of the reason for the review, Biegun said, was the depiction of Bruce Byron Lowrance from North Korea Lowrance, a US citizen, had illegally entered the North Korea from China on October 16th and was released in November.

The state-run Korean office said that Lowrance told investigators he was “manipulated” by the CIA when he was

Hans release gave US officials “greater confidence in the safety and security of American travel” to North Korea, sat e Biegun.
