The United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund says it has begun shipping medical supplies to North Korea.

UNICEF's Seoul office said on Friday that the supplies were being sent from the Chinese port of Dalian to the North Korean city of Nampo, some 50 kilometers southwest of Pyongyang.

The agency added that it plans to deliver more items.

An official said North Korea opened a key sea route on its western coast to receive humanitarian aid deliveries following its closure attributable to the COVID-19 pandemic.
