North Korea says sanctions threaten survival of its children

Han said North Korea, whose population is 26 million, is a “people-centered socialist country… where protection and promotion of the rights and welfare of the child are given top priority … There is room for improvement.”

But Han said that new sanctions imposed by the United States and the U.N. Security Council over North Korea’s nuclear and ballistic missile tests were hampering the production of nutritional goods for children and provision of textbooks.
