Christian Science Monitor: New Study Shows South Korea Supports Cutting Aid to North Korea

December 9, 2010 — An article in Christian Science Monitor covers a new study that shows public support in South Korea for cutting aid to North Korea has nearly doubled in the wake of the artillery attack. The Asia Foundation’s Ed Reed is quoted as saying, “Before the Yeonpyeong incident, there was some thought in the South that if the North were willing to agree to a system of frequent reunions of separated families, the South would consider a kind of quid pro quo where food aid would be supplied. For South Korea, it would now be politically impossible to give any substantial aid to North Korea.” Read the full article: “Yeonpyeong attack spoils South Korea’s appetite for sending food aid to North Korea.”
