South Korea considering US$ 8 mil. humanitarian aid package for North Korea Updated: 2017-09-14 11:54:27 KST

Could it be the start of the much expected President Moon's sunshine policy, also dubbed the 'Moonshine' policy on North Korea?
The South Korean government has revealed it's reviewing a plan as part of its so-called "two-track approach" to send eight million U.S. dollars in humanitarian support to North Korea through international organizations.
Although the details have yet to be confirmed,… the Unification Ministry says the government is holding a meeting next Thursday on whether to send aid to the most vulnerable North Koreans.
If the plan gets the green light, the ministry says it will give four-and-a-half million dollars to the World Food Program to help infants and pregnant women.
The remaining three.five million will be given to the UN International Children's Emergency Fund.
Seoul's "two-track approach" is based on pressuring the regime through sanctions while seeking talks and helping ordinary North Koreans with aid.
