North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has formally acknowledged that the country is facing food shortages.
Addressing a meeting of senior leaders, Mr Kim said “the people’s food situation is now getting tense”.
He said the agricultural sector had failed to meet its grain targets because of last year’s typhoons, which caused widespread flooding.
There are some reports that food prices have spiked, with NK News reporting that a kg of bananas cost 45.
