Two Koreas discuss rice aid and economic cooperation
North and South Korea on Monday were forging agreements on economic cooperation and rice aid for the impoverished North during talks that got a boost over the weekend when Pyongyang announced an end to its boycott of nuclear disarmament negotiations.

North Korea announced on Saturday that it would return to the six-party nuclear negotiations _ as South Korea and the other four countries in the forum have sought for more than a year _ lending an atmosphere of good will to inter-Korean economic talks that opened the same day.

The economic talks were expected to wrap up on time later Monday before the North Koreans' scheduled return home Tuesday.

The North has requested 500,000 tons of rice aid from the South, and the agreement was expected to determine when and how that would be delivered.

Seoul has proposed economic cooperation in projects ranging from fisheries to the opening of direct flights between the two Korean capitals. South Korea also proposed conducting a pilot run of reconnected railways between the two Koreas and staging an opening ceremony for restored roads as early as August.
