Kim said it would take around two months to deliver the countrys homegrown rice to the DPRK through the WFP, noting that Seoul will make efforts to provide the rice as rapidly as possible. The rice provision announcement came after Seoul approved a plan earlier this month to donate 8 million US dollars to the WFP and the United Nations Childrens Fund (UNICEF) for humanitarian food aid to the DPRK. Through the two organizations, the donation would be used for food assistance to babies and pregnant women in the DPRK. The last South Korean food aid to the DPRK happened in 2010 when 5,000 tons of rice was delivered to the north. The necessary fund for rice aid worth 27 billion won (23 million US dollars) would be raised from the inter-Korean cooperation fund, which was launched in 1991 to boost exchange and economic cooperation between South Korea and the DPRK, the minister said. Kim noted that the timing and size of the additional food aid to the DPRK would be determined later.RELATED ARTICLES:S.Korean minister calls for rapid resumption of DPRK-US denuke talksPosted in: DIPLOMATIC CHANNEL/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1154832;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disquswindow._taboola = window._taboola || [];_taboola.push({mode: thumbnails-a,container: taboola-below-article,placement: below article,target_type: mix});load_file(“/includes/adv_right.html”);load_file(“/includes/footer.html”);$(document).ready(function($){$(“#channel-list .row-content”).each(function(){  if($(this).children().length==1){$(this).children().css(width,100%);}
