The price of 1 kg of banana is Rs 3335 and the price of 1 kg tea powder is Rs 5190

North Korea is facing a severe food crisis with prices of essential commodities shooting through the roof. In a meeting of the central committee of the country’s ruling party, North Korea’s supreme leader Kim Jong Un said the food situation is “tense”, as per state-run news agency KCNA.

The Corona crisis has broken the shackles of North Korea, which is already facing sanctions. North Korea has closed its border with China to escape the Corona malady. As a result, the supply of essential commodities has stopped. So, this year’s hurricane has caused huge damage to agriculture. As a result, North Korea’s agricultural production has stopped. Due to this double invocation, North Korea has only enough grain to last two months.

“The people’s food situation is now getting tense as the agricultural sector failed to fulfil its grain production plan due to the damage by the typhoon last year,” Kim said.

As per reports, prices of essential food items have skyrocketed in country’s capital Pyongyang, with a kg of bananas selling for $45 (about Rs 3,335), a packet of black tea for $70 (about Rs 5,190) and a packet of coffee for $100 (Rs 7,414).

In the meeting, Kim asked the party workers to work to resolve the food shortage. However, it is unclear how North Korea can quickly tackle the issue as the country’s borders remain closed due to COVID-19 restrictions.
