South Korea is also trying to build public and political support for providing wider food aid to North Korea, either directly or through the WFP.

North Korea has warned the United States on Tuesday that its "outrageous" seizure of a Pyongyang's cargo ship could generate consequences over the future of North Korea-US relations.

Since 2018, North Korea has been engaged in denuclearization talks with the United States. A second summit between the two, held in Vietnam in February, collapsed without a deal due to large differences over the scope of North Korea's denuclearization and offers of sanctions relief by the U.S.
