S. Korea offers humanitarian assistant to flood-hit DPRK

(Xinhua)

15:52, September 07, 2012

SEOUL, Sept. 7 (Xinhua) -- South Korea has offered to send aid to the flood-stricken Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) and is awaiting a response, unification minister Yu Woo-ik said Friday.

South Korea recently expressed its intention to help the northern neighbor recover from dry spells, heavy rains and typhoons, Yu told the parliament in response to a question by a lawmaker.

While the two Koreas still remain sharply at odds over deadly border clashes in 2010, the offer could lead to the first aid shipment to the DPRK in two years.

The DPRK's state media reported floods left 169 people dead, 400 missing and 65,280 hectares of land inundated.
