The U.S. says it continues to support international efforts for humanitarian aid to North Korea BUT adds the North Korean regime itself is responsible for the humanitarian crisis there.
AT A BRIEFING on Thursday U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price said WHILE the U.S. may disagree with a particular regime it will do all it can to ease the sufferings of the people there.
He claimed the U.S. is engaged in efforts to facilitate the provision of aid to North Korea BUT lamented the regime's relentless exploitation of its own people and the diversion of resources from people to nuclear and missile efforts.
