Description
 
Should the U.S. resume food, energy, and/or denuclearization assistance to North Korea? This is the major issue facing Congress in considering the provision of aid to Pyongyang. Between 1995 and 2008, the U.S. provided North Korea with over $1.3 billion in assistance: just over 50% for food aid and about 40% for energy assistance. Since early 2009, the U.S. has provided virtually no aid to North Korea. On Feb. 29, 2012, after bilateral talks with the U.S., North Korea announced a moratorium on long-range missile launches, nuclear tests, and nuclear activities (including uranium enrichment) at its Yongbyon nuclear facilities. It also said it would allow international nuclear inspectors to return to North Korea. The U.S. announced it would provide North Korea with 240,000 metric tons (MT) of food aid. However, the so-called šůžLeap Day dealšůĚ unraveled after North Korea on April 13, 2012, launched, in defiance of UN resolutions, a rocket to place an šůžearth observation satellitešůĚ into orbit. Contents of this report: A Brief History of U.S. Aid to North Korea; The Feb. 2012 U.S.-North Korean Announcements; Should Food Aid Be Resumed?; U.S. Energy Assistance; U.S. Denuclearization Assistance; U.S. Food Assistance; Other Forms of U.S. Assistance. Figures and tables.
