US exports $3.1m to DPRK in 2010

According to Voice of America:

US news broadcaster Voice of America has reported that the American government allowed 3.1 million US dollars worth of goods to be exported to North Korea last year.

Out of the 18 export cases 15 of them were humanitarian goods such as food and medical items, while the other three were portable generators.

Currently there are various export restrictions placed on North Korea by the US due to the North’s nuclear programs and its human rights abuses.

But the American government allows certain exports for humanitarian purposes such as blankets, shoes and medicine on a case-by-case basis.
