World Food Program appeals to South

From the Choson Ilbo:

The UN World Food Program is asking Seoul to send food aid to North Korea. North Korea asked the WFP for food aid in mid-May, and the WFP sent a letter to South Korea last Monday, the Ministry of Unification said on Sunday.


Seoul gave about 100,000 tons of corn to North Korea every year through the WFP from 2001 to 2004. In 2007, Seoul sent about 32,000 tons of food, including soybean and corn, to the North through the WFP.
