WFP to Supply Food Aid to North Korea in December Updated: 2011-12-03 00:00:00 KST

The World Food Program will be supplying more than 32-thousand tons of food aid to North Korea sometime this month.
According to Radio Free Asia, the 32-thousand and 7-hundred tons of food aid scheduled to be sent to the North is the largest amount ever supplied to the communist regime in a one-month period.
It should be enough to feed around 35-thousand people.
Although North Korea’s annual harvest is expected yield more returns than last year, the country will still see a shortfall of food this year.
An estimated one out of every three North Koreans will be entirely dependent on food aid from outside the country.
Some experts believe that withholding food aid may negatively affect North Korea's willingness to open up and cooperate with the international community.
However, others contend that ensuring North Koreans don’t go hungry can help foster better relations with the world after six decades of relative isolation.
