Korea Lends Helping Hand to North

Korea Lends Helping Hand to North”

Following his speech at the UN, South Korean President Moon Jae-in will meet with his US counterpart to discuss North Korea's nuclear crisis amid escalating tensions over whether President Donald Trump's harsh rhetoric against North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could lead to a miscalculation.

South Korea suspended humanitarian aid to North Korea after the country conducted its fourth nuclear test in January 2016.

"We call on all parties to be calmer than calm and not let the situation escalate out of control", Wang said, according to a report from the state-run China News Service on Thursday.

It's the South Korean president's debut on the United Nations stage.

A U.S. official said that Trump would later Thursday make an announcement of further sanctions on North Korea.

The new South Korean leader is scheduled to speak after the leaders of Serbia and Haiti and will become the first South Korean president to address UNGA in his first year in office since South and North Korea together joined the United Nations in 1991. The government will decide when to provide the aid considering the state of relations between the rival Koreas, the ministry said.

"Today, we estimate that around 200,000 children are affected by acute malnutrition, heightening their risk of death and increasing rates of stunting", Reuters quoted as saying.

"Food and essential medicines and equipment to treat young children are in short supply", she said.

The last time South Korea provided humanitarian aid to North Korea through an global agency was in December 2015, when it gave $800,000 to the U.N. Population Fund project to evaluate North Korean public health conditions.

Foreign Minister Kang Kyung-wha made the remark in a meeting held on Tuesday with Anthony Lake, executive director of the U.N. International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF) on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly underway in NY. "Rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and his regime".

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho called Trump's comments "the sound of a dog barking".

"If (Trump) was thinking about surprising us with dog-barking sounds then he is clearly dreaming", he said.

Moon will later hold a three-way meeting with US President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, two right-leaning leaders who have pressed to punish North Korea.

He said "a security guarantee other than the nuclear bomb" is needed for North Korea and pointed to Cold War detente as an example.
