An EBSCO news source states how Mongolia and North Korea have a bit of tension at the moment. The North Korean government current is trying to pressure or pity Mongolia into solving their problems and their leverage is their cultural similarities.
The DPRK has been trying to convince the Mongolian Government to help with their food crisis. There are high numbers of not just children that are malnourished but adults, as well as having stunted growth. Mongolia has been doing well with their food and crops and the ambassador is hoping to use them as an option out of their food shortage which is not only among their citizens but also their prisons and labor camps.
“Koreans and nearby Mongolians share an ancient ethnic and lingual heritage, and now it appears North Korea is hoping those ties will help them borrow a bit of needed butter and sugar.”- EBSCO
Mongolia has been doing well in leading with the amounts of food as well as donation, I don’t believe that it affects us, but they do not seem to be in a state of unrest, they are pretty well off.
