The government completed the necessary administrative work Tuesday for the shipment of 10,000 tons of corn to North Korea, the Unification Ministry said Wednesday.
The government plans to purchase Chinese corn with some W4 billion (US$1=W1,138) out of the inter-Korean development fund. The delivery is expected to take about a month.
Seoul offered the corn aid in October last year, and Pyongyang accepted last Friday.
