NSC "대북 인도적지원 정치상황과 무관하게 추진"
Seoul plans to provide 8 million U.S. dollars in humanitarian aid to Pyeongyang through international organizations.
The National Security Council announced it will move forward with the 8-million dollar aid to help North Korean children and pregnant women... at the request of the WFP and UNICEF.
The council will also push ahead with food aid to the regime,... a gesture that should not be affected by politics.
The remarks came during a meeting chaired by National Security Advisor Chung Eui-yong,... where council members discussed the World Food Programme's recent report on the North's food situation.
The NSC plans to continue reviewing specific plans for the food aid,... also reflecting public opinion on the matter.
