BBC NEWS | Asia-Pacific | US donating food aid to N Korea: "US donating food aid to N Korea
The United States says it is to donate 50,000 tons of food aid to North Korea,
The state department said the gesture was unrelated to negotiations on North Korea's nuclear weapons programme.
Spokesman Richard Boucher said the aid was to help the North Korean people and not try to affect the talks.
The aid will be distributed through the World Food Programme. Mr Boucher said the North was allowing more monitoring of food distribution and security.
The aid is 'to help relieve the suffering of the North Korean people despite our concerns about the North Korean government's policies,' said Mr Boucher. "
