South Korea delays aid to the North

(See also my earlier post today, North Korea and the Russia card.)

Radio Australia is reporting that South Korea will delay a planned aid shipment to the North this week as Pyongyang moves to restart its nuclear reactor.
North Korea's action is a violation of the aid for disarmament six nation deal it has made with South Korea, the United States, Japan, Russia and China.

North Korea's foreign ministry has confirmed the plutonium-producing reactor will be restored because of the United State's failure to drop the North from a terrorism blacklist.

South Korea's Yonhap news agency, citing an unnamed government source, says the delivery steel pipes originally due on Thursday will be put on hold until later next month.
