U.S. seeks to expedite humanitarian aid for North Korea amid stalled nuclear talks

A U.S. envoy announced that officials would seek to help expedite humanitarian aid to North Korea, as Washington and Pyongyang struggle to find a breakthrough in their stalled talks aimed at ending North Korea’s nuclear programme.Stephen Biegun, the U.S. special representative for North Korea, arrived in Seoul for four days of talks with South Korean officials.With Washington doubling down on sanctions enforcement, humanitarian aid for North Korea has nearly ground to a halt this year, despite warnings of a potential food crisis and improving relations with Pyongyang, aid groups say. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un vowed to work towards denuclearisation at his landmark summit with U.S. President Donald Trump in Singapore in June but the two sides have since made little progress. International sanctions imposed over North Korea’s nuclear weapons programmes technically do not cover humanitarian activities, and over the summer the United Nations adopted a U.S. proposal designed to streamline approval for aid shipments.
