Pyongyang has asked for vital aid from Seoul; namely, rice and fertilizer. In response, South Korea has agreed to send 400,000 tons of rice and 200,000 tons of fertilizer. This amount is on par to what the South has sent to its northern neighbor in years past, and is the most fitting resolution according to Minister of Unification Jeong Se-hyun. North Korean Red Cross Chairman Jang Jae Eon similarly stated that this is an act to encourage reconciliation between North and South and will mutually benefit both countries.
