South Korea vows to send aid to North quickly


South Korea has vowed to move quickly on its plans to provide 8 million US Dollar worth of humanitarian aid to North Korea through international organizations.

It is also considering sending food to its northern neighbour that says it is suffering its worst drought in decades.

Seoul's Unification Ministry today said, it will discuss its plans with the World Food Programme and the United Nations Children's Fund so the aid reaches North Korean children and pregnant women quickly.

Seoul hopes the aid will help revive diplomacy and engagement with Pyongyang that tapered off amid a stalemate in nuclear talks between the United States and North Korea. (AIR NEWS)
