Sweden will not suspend aid to North Korea this year despite Pyonyang's ambitions to develop nuclear weapons, the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA) said Sunday, citing a report from its Stockholm office.

"News media there played up critical stories on the North's nuclear program and yet reported the Swedish government, business circles and civic organizations will continue their aid to the famine-stricken nation," a KOTRA official said./Yonhap
