‘Completely ABSURD’ Fury as Britain plans to KEEP sending foreign aid to North Korea : Express.

BRITAIN has spent huge sums on aid projects in North Korea and has no plans to withdraw donations despite the increasing nuclear threat, it has been revealed.

Critics have branded the decision to maintain aid payments “absurd”, with a number of political figures calling for a cease of all aid to the hermit state until Kim Jong-un stops threatening the international community.

In 2015, £740,000 of taxpayers money was given to various aid projects in North Korea, according to official figures – a 167 per cent increase on the year before.

“They are trying to build a nuclear missile to hit the United States, they are destabilising the entire region. Why on earth are we giving them aid?”

Meanwhile, Ukip donor Arron Banks said spending money on aid projects in North Korea is “beyond ridiculous”.

“While we funnel money into this failing state, they are spending most of their own resources developing nuclear weapons designed to wipe us off the map.

“What’s next? Giving foreign aid to Islamic State?”
