South Korea's unity government has approved a plan to send $ 8 million in humanitarian aid to North Korea as part of an aid policy the government says has not been affected by tension with the north.
"The decision was made after a meeting of government officials led by Minister of Unity Zhou Myung-gyeon," the report said, after the UN passed new sanctions against North Korea in response to Pyongyang's sixth " Nuclear tests ".
The Seoul government indicated that it aims to send $ 4.5 million in nutrition products to children and pregnant women through the World Food Program and $ 3.5 million in vaccines and medical treatment through the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
North Korea's humanitarian aid to its northern neighbor has been stalled since North held its fourth nuclear test in January last year. Ending / 25 z
