EAT LESS – A report stated that North Koreans have orders from its leader, Kim Jong-Un, to eat less.

For the longest time, North Korea has had an issue with its food supply. As such, a report from TodayUK News stated that the North Korean leader ordered its citizens to eat less until 2025.

Because of this, Kim Jong-un told North Koreans to tighten their belts and eat less food over the next few years. This, despite North Korea’s existing food shortage emergency.

According to officials, citizens have to accept the food shortage until North Korea opens its borders with China once again. However, the reopening of the Chinese–North Korean border won’t happen until the year 2025.

Now, due to the closed borders with China, North Korea’s economy felt a huge blow leading to food shortages and price increases. As per the article, a resident told Radio Free Asia:

Two weeks ago, they told the neighborhood watch unit meeting that our food emergency would continue until 2025. Authorities emphasized that the possibility of reopening customs between North Korea and China before 2025 was very slim

Moreover, the resident noted how the food situation in North Korea is already a clear emergency. “When the authorities tell them that they need to conserve and consume less food until 2025… they can do nothing but feel great despair“, he added.
