FAO: it is unacceptable deaths of millions of starvation in 21st century
[17/February/2017] ROME, Feb. 17 (Saba) – The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) confirmed on Friday that it is unacceptable in the 21st century to be 20 million people at risk of starvation in various parts of the world.

FAO director at the Emergency and Rehabilitation Division Dominique Bargeon called on the international community to find solutions for the armed conflicts in some countries through political means to enable the United Nations agencies and relief organizations to do their function safely and delivery of humanitarian aid urgently.

Bargeon said in remarks carried out by Belgian's state media on Friday that there are four areas in the world currently suffering from hunger, such as Yemen, South Sudan, Nigeria and Somalia.

"There are 20 million people suffering from severe food shortages in these areas and we are afraid of their lives of starvation in the upcoming six months", he said.

The UN official described the situation in those four countries as "tragic", stressing that the population does not have access to basic food, and sometimes forced to sell their property and their livestock for food.

He said that the FAO is very concerned about this situation, pointing out that this situation is the worst in 20 years.

This comes at a time that many international organizations launched appealing to address famines that threaten South Sudan, Yemen, Somalia and many other areas in the world.
