Thousands of hectares of land are rented in the Khabarovsk Territory

Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the DPRK Goen Meng and Minister of the same industry of the Khabarovsk Territory Alexander Yats signed a lease agreement for agricultural land on the territory of the Russian region in the Far East.

After the October visit of DPRK Foreign Minister Lee Soo Yen to Russia, during which a proposal for cooperation with the Khabarovsk Territory in agriculture was announced, the Deputy Minister of this industry, Go Myeong-hee, signed a lease agreement with the Minister of Agriculture of the Region Alexander Yatz 10 hectares of farmland, which will be put under the development of vegetable and grain crops, as well as livestock, reports RIA Novosti.

Lee Soohn Yong last month said that a loan of $ 600 million, which was issued to North Korea by Qatar, will be attracted to implement projects in this area in Russia. After several meetings with the heads of other regions of the Far East of the Russian Federation, the offer of cooperation came from him to the Khabarovsk Territory, for which Go Menh Hee expressed her gratitude. At the same time, she said that she hoped for fruitful work for both parties from an economic point of view, in which, besides the necessary materials and agricultural machinery, the DPRK will also provide labor. In addition, in the future, the parties plan to develop cooperation in other areas. In particular, they talked about construction, tourism and restaurant business.

According to Alexander Yats, the results of this meeting can be considered very beneficial, taking into account the current economic situation, when the import of products from Western countries is limited by the terms of various sanctions. In Korea, after natural disasters and unfavorable weather conditions that have accompanied the state in recent years, according to experts, there is a general food crisis. According to RIA Novosti, in mid-summer 2014, according to the UN, the citizens of the DPRK received only 420 g of food every day, when 600 is considered normal. A year ago, according to the same source, less than half of Koreans had the opportunity to receive a "normal amount" of food. 17% ate poorly, and 38% were still starving.
