South Korea approves aid to North Korea, North calls Trump 'barking dog'

South Korea approves aid to North Korea, North calls Trump 'barking dog'”

The South Korean government will give North Korea $8 million worth of aid through two worldwide organizations under the United Nations, as President Moon Jae-in continues to distinguish between humanitarian assistance and political and military affairs in his dealings with the Kim Jong-un regime.

South Korea is to resume financial aid to North Korea despite Pyongyang's ongoing development of nuclear weapons, according to Seoul's Unification Ministry on Thursday.

Since its fourth nuclear test a month later, North Korea has conducted two more nuclear tests and flight-tested a slew of new missile systems, including developmental ICBMs that could potentially reach deep into the US mainland when perfected. The Ministry of Unification said details of the plan, including when and how the donations will actually be carried out, will be decided "with consideration of South-North relations", without elaborating any further.

"Humanitarian aid to North Koreans should continue".

Ahead of the meeting, UNICEF's Regional Director for East Asia and the Pacific, Karin Hulshof said in a statement the problems North Korean children face "are all too real".

Trump listed several accusations against North Korea in his speech Tuesday, saying in reference to Megumi, "we know it kidnapped a sweet 13-year-old Japanese girl from a beach in her own country to enslave her as a language tutor for North Korea's spies".

Although the approval rate is still high, those surveyed said Moon had fallen out of favour due to North Korea's continued provocations and the government's decision to consider sending aid to North Korea, Realmeter said.

"Food and essential medicines and equipment to treat young children are in short supply", she said. The World Health Organization estimates the mortality rate among North Korean children aged five and under at 25 per 1,000, compared with three in every 1,000 in South Korea.

Moon's conservative predecessor Park Geun-hye halted humanitarian aid to North Korea after the regime conducted a nuclear test in January 2016. But is it easy to get aid to the people who need it most?
