Cabinet OKs US$8 Million Humanitarian Aid to N.Korea

The government on Thursday approved a proposal to give US$8 million in aid to North Korean mothers and children through international organizations.

But it did not set a date for the payment. "The government will decide on the timing after watching the development of the inter-Korean situation and taking other factors into account", the Unification Ministry said in a statement.

Seoul has been severely criticized over the timing of the proposal amid international efforts to bring the North to heel after its latest nuclear test.
