Seoul to Resume Aid as Dispute Is Settled

From Times Wire Reports

South Korea agreed to give North Korea 400,000 tons of rice after the two sides settled a dispute over a perceived threat from Pyongyang. The two also agreed to connect their railways in mid-June inside the demilitarized zone, said a joint statement released by the South.

The meeting in Pyongyang, the North’s capital, had stalled after the nation’s delegates criticized last week’s summit between President Bush and South Korean President Roh Moo Hyun and warned of an “unspeakable disaster.” Talks resumed after a delegate said no threat was intended by the remarks.
