The government also said that it will draw up plans to provide humanitarian food assistance to ease food shortages in North Korea, apparently aggravated by global sanctions and unfavorable weather conditions, despite North Korea's recent missile firings. 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.

It was the first time the United States had seized a North Korean vessel after several years of close calls on the high seas in which the country's shippers renamed their vessels, used false flags and turned off their tracking devices to avoid detection.

In a rare press conference on Tuesday, Ambassador Kim Song said that Pyongyang was closely monitoring Washington's "every move" following the seizure, which he said was aimed at bringing maximum pressure on his country to make it "kneel down".
