Worsening of Hunger in 3rd World Feared

From Reuters

Hunger in the Third World could worsen because of reduced harvests in the United States and cuts in European Common Market crop surpluses, West German Agriculture Minister Ignaz Kiechle said Monday.

Kiechle said that in 1989 the Common Market again will provide at least 1.67 million tons of wheat for food aid to poor underdeveloped nations and large amounts of butter oil and skim milk powder.

“But I fear that difficulties in ensuring food supplies in the (Third World) could increase further due to reduced harvests in the U.S.A. and the dismantling of surplus production” in the Common Market, Kiechle said.
