U.S. Ban On American Aid Workers Traveling To North Korea Affecting Humanitarian Efforts, Advocates Say

New York Times: U.S. Bars American Aid Groups From Traveling to North Korea
“The Trump administration has barred American aid workers from going to North Korea as it pressures Pyongyang to dismantle the country’s nuclear weapons program, according to humanitarian groups and a former United States ambassador. … North Korea is one of the world’s poorest nations, and its citizens grapple with food shortages. … Barring aid workers from traveling affects humanitarian programs in North Korea, including efforts to alleviate tuberculosis and provide medical training and farming assistance…” (Wong/Sang-Hun, 10/17).
