A South Korean official says the United States plans to send an envoy to North Korea for talks on the North's urgent request for food aid.
The U.S. suspended food shipments to North Korea in 2009 after monitors were expelled. But activists and humanitarians have recently urged Washington to resume shipments as the North suffers after summer floods and a harsh winter.
A South Korean Foreign Ministry official said Tuesday that Washington plans to send its envoy for North Korean human rights to Pyongyang to assess the need for aid and ways to make sure the shipments reach the hungry.
The official says Robert King's trip could start early next week.
He requested anonymity because Washington plans to make a formal announcement.
