South Korea said Thursday it will resume emergency flood aid to North Korea that had been suspended after last year's nuclear test, in the latest sign that Pyongyang's recent agreement on nuclear disarmament has warmed ties between the Koreas. The South's Vice Unification Minister Shin Eon-sang said the aid, which had been pledged to help North Korea cope with floods last summer, would be resumed. Seoul has previously said it would send food and medical supplies along with construction materials and equipment. Shin said the government decided to resume the aid following progress in the international nuclear talks, requests from the North and the fact that it was purely humanitarian assistance as part of emergency relief.
