    The DPRK feels it is wrong to withhold food and other much needed aid from our people because we have an ongoing plan to defend our nation.

    The RoK and Japan have called for nations to withhold aid from our people in order to force us to give up our nuclear deterrence program.

    The DPRK has pushed for a resumption of 6 party talks and is making many efforts to engage with the international community, and we feel that this is being hindered by threats from these countries.

    IAED feels that we should come to a resolution on how to reduce the conflict; food and water is of the greatest priority, as always.
    The nuclear deterrence maybe a problem due other countries, such as the US and China also doing so...
    Although, what is China's view on this?

    China feels that aid must be allowed to flow into the DPRK, and that holding off will result in deaths. We are glad that the DPRK is opening up to the international community and that it may rejoin 6 party talks after its negotiations with the US, and we agree with the DPRK that this is not the time to make threats, when we are close to being able to open negotiations again.

    Cyprus firmly believes that North Korea still needs to prove to the international community it is not developing weapons of mass destruction. Since these claims have not yet been refuted, Cyprus hopes North Korea understands why there are sanctions in place against their nation. Nonetheless, the transfer of aid to the civilian population must not be restricted as it could potentially cause civilian deaths.

    Malta is unsure of whether 6 party talks should begin again (primarily because we were part of them?????)

    However demands that other countries gives aid.

    Malta offers £5million to the DPRK for aid purposes only.

    Colombia agrees with the DPRK's opinion that aid should not be held-back.

    However, we would like to point out to the DPRK that if it abandons it's nuclear programs, it will be able to afford to import food, in order to feed its population.

    Brazil echoes the sentiment expressed by the representative for the Netherlands and hope that this can lead to a return to the six-party talks.

    The Federal Republic of Nigeria agrees with North Korea that food should not be witheld because there are people in North Korea who have no say in the country's nuclear program, so they should not have to suffer because of the ignorance of the leadership.
    In saying that, it is good that there are talks going on however Nigeria is skeptical of the outcome.

    France believes that the DPRK should give a higher priority to bringing an estimated 10 million of its own people out of food poverty than to building nuclear weapons.
    If the DPRK has the money to fund an extensive nuclear weapons program, it should also have the money to feed its own people. North Korea seems to have no grasp of the concept of priority spending.
