SEOUL - The Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) accepted the Repulic of Korea's offer to provide emergency relief aid, local media reported Monday.

The DPRK notified ROK's authorities of its decision earlier in the day via the Red Cross liaison channel at Panmunjom, a border-straddling village, according to Yonhap News Agency.

The move came a week after ROK offered to help the estranged northern neighbor recover from dry spells, heavy rains and typhoons, the first such offer in two years.

The DPRK's state media reported floods left 169 people dead, 400 missing and 65,280 hectares of land inundated.
