North Korea Rejects Flood Aid Offer From the South

Sept. 12 (Bloomberg) -- North Korea rejected South Korea’s offer to provide 10,000 tons of flour, 3 million packets of ramen noodles and medical aid, to help with the aftermath of floods, South Korea’s Unification Ministry said today in a text message.

North Korea said the aid wasn’t needed to cope with suffering caused by recent torrential rain and typhoons.

The North accepted two days ago an offer by the South, agreeing to discuss details of “unconditional aid” through the Red Cross.
