BEIJING - A US envoy said on Thursday he was confident proposed food aid to North Korea would flow to those who really need it, but stopped short of announcing a final deal, part of a nascent agreement to restart nuclear disarmament steps by Pyongyang.

The US envoy for human rights in North Korea, Robert King, said talks with North Korean officials in the Chinese capital helped clear administrative roadblocks to the aid.

King suggested that worries about the food possibly being diverted by the North Korean government for its own needs had been dealt with.
