The United Nations has on Monday waived sanctions to the agencies to provide humanitarian assistance to North Korea in a bid to let temporary relief enter the communist country, including access to clean water, food security as well as improving children’s health.

According to ANI news reports, the UN sanction relief has come into the effect on March 14 which has allowed Mennonite Central Committee aid agency to deliver humanitarian aids such as surgical tools and hygiene kits into North Korea.

The approval of these waived sanctions will be valid for the next six months, and that it has raised the total numbers of humanitarian exemptions which were related to Pyongyang currently in effect until 21.

Humanitarian assistance was not banned under international sanctions, but however, the flow of aid supplies was restricted by the United Nations.

The aid agency has said it will be delivering medical equipment during a monitoring visit to North Korea in May.

In fact, the United States President Donald Trump has on March 23, removed additional “large-scale” treasury sanctions on Kim Jong-Un’s ruled country, a move seen as Trump’s bid to keep denuclearization talks on track with Kim.

However, the White House has refused to comment overTrump’ss move, as reported by CNN, but also added saying that the US president took the US sanction relief step because he “likes” President Kim.
