South Korea Approves An $8 Million Aid Package For North Korea

South Korea Approves An $8 Million Aid Package For North Korea”

"We will be putting more sanctions on North Korea", Trump said on Thursday in response to a question at a meeting with Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in NY on the sidelines of the annual gathering of world leaders at the United Nations.

Trump warned North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in a speech to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday that the United States, if threatened, would "totally destroy" his country of 26 million people.

The Japanese prime minister, Shinzo Abe, reportedly asked the South Korean president, Moon Jae-in, to reconsider the timing of the aid package in a recent telephone call.

Trump is expected to announce additional sanctions about North Korea on Thursday over its nuclear weapons program. Pyongyang conducted its most powerful underground atomic test explosion and fired missiles over Japan twice in the past three weeks. Yet it is still South Korea, and its capital Seoul close to the heavily militarized frontier with the North, that faces the greatest immediate risk in a military conflict.

Moon told the U.N. General Assembly sanctions were needed to bring Pyongyang to the negotiating table and force it to give up its nuclear weapons, but Seoul was not seeking North Korea's collapse and the worldwide community was ready to help the country if it stood on the right side of history.

Despite North Korea's "flagrant violations", the South Korean government and the worldwide community are making every effort to resolve the situation peacefully, he said.

"We call on all parties to be calmer than calm and not let the situation escalate out of control", Wang said. Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi reiterated to his South Korean counterpart Beijing's demand for the removal of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (Thaad) anti-missile system, state news agency Xinhua said this morning.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel was in "clear disagreement" with Trump, saying in a radio interview that "any kind of military solution is completely deficient".

The South said it aims to send $4.5 million worth of nutritional products for children and pregnant women through the World Food Programme and $3.5 million worth of vaccines and medicinal treatments through UNICEF.

The Obama administration authorized $1 million in aid to North Korea the day before Donald Trump took office, the first time America had done so since 2011.

North Korea's Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho on Wednesday delivered a scornful response to that threat, likening it to the sound of "a dog barking".
