The United Nations has excluded for the second straight year North Korea from its global humanitarian assistance plan for next year, according to a recent report.

The move is apparently due to the regime's prolonged border closures due to COVID-19.

The Global Humanitarian Overview 2022 released Friday by the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs showed plans for the Asia-Pacific region only included those for Afghanistan and Myanmar.

But, it noted that North Korea is "facing acute food insecurity situations, which are likely to deteriorate further by the year's end."

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization's December report on global crop prospects and food situation, the reclusive state was among 44 countries requiring external assistance for food, with a large portion of its population estimated to be suffering from low levels of food consumption.
