Peninsula For Peace: South Korea Sends Sanctioned Material to North Korea

South Korea has sent 1 billion won ($893,239.96) worth of sanctioned material to North Korea, customs data showed on Friday, raising concern ties with the United States could be damaged as the South pursues cooperation with the North. South Korea transferred about 113 tonnes of materials and equipment including steel, copper, nickel and water heaters to North Korea in June and July, according to customs data released by opposition lawmaker Cheong Yang-seog. Last month, South Korea’s customs agency said three South Korean firms imported coal from North Korea disguised as Russian products in violation of U.N. resolutions.

In terms of the threat from the north, I see only the nuclear rhetoric changing. The world -- and especially S. Korea -- wishes it was more of a change occurring in the regime there. Is more happening in the north than the wish?
