USA and N Korea swap foodtech for secrets
THE USA has committed itself to a pilot programme to increase potato crops yields in North Korea in return for access to the famine-struck countrys weapon sites.
America has refused to provide £200 million and food donations, which North Korea had demanded in return for access to the site.
Washington, which has been pressing for access to the underground site since August, believes North Korea may be reviving its nuclear weapons programme.
