North Korea rejected South Korea's offer of food and medical supplies to help flood victims. This is because South Korea proposed providing 10,000 tons of flour, 3 million packages of ramen noodles.
North Korea responded by expressing dissatisfaction with the assistance offered and claimed that type of support is not needed. What they needed was heavy equipment, cement, and rice. North Korea criticized South Korea and the ROK National Red Cross for behaving condescendingly for providing such useless items.
In the past, North Korea has been accused of using aids for flood victims from provided by South Korea for military purposes. If North Korea are given rice and cement, it is very likely that they will misuse the resources for military purpose.
Who in the right minds would provide aid to North Korea if they use it for military purposes? The international community's request for transparency of the use of the aids are just and North Korea must adhere to these requests.
North Korea should not be offended for the fact they are being doubted by the international community because it was they that caused the suspicion in the first place.
North Korea's refusal and criticism towards South Korea's 'useless' aids is absurd. I strongly believe that they are not in the position to be picky. If North Korea indeed did care about its people they would have accepted the aid regardless of all strings attached. This is all probably because North Korea aims to misuse the aids for a different purpose. Hint - military purposes...
