South Korea's minister in charge of reconciliation with North Korea said Tuesday that security on the divided peninsula would not improve until the issue of poverty in the communist nation is addressed. Unification Minister Lee Jae-joung also said the South should take responsibility for addressing the problem, hinting at the possibility of Seoul resuming suspended aid to the North. "As long as the North's poverty problem is not fundamentally addressed, security on the Korean peninsula will always be precarious and peace will not be guaranteed," Lee said in his New Year's message to ministry officials.
