South Korea is reportedly planning to provide North Korea with some US$1 million worth of aid through non-governmental organizations.
According to government sources, the South Korean administration will make an official decision regarding the aid by the end of this week.
The sources emphasized that aid delivered through the inter-Korean cooperation fund should be viewed separately from direct humanitarian assistance that Pyongyang requested during inter-Korean Red Cross talks last week.
