Voice of America is highlighting a deal with Yahoo! Korea that will provide VOA news about the Korean Peninsula, international and U.S. news.

“The online news service will cover breaking political, diplomatic, and international news from hard-to-access areas of North Korea and the Korean Peninsula,” VOA stated.

Under this agreement, starting in March Yahoo! Korea will offer VOA news in the Korean language in real time. The organization said this means Korean users will have “access to news flashes on important topics such as the six-party negotiations regarding North Korea and major policy decisions of the U.S. administration and Congress.”

Yahoo! Korea also plans to offer VOA’s Special English, which uses a vocabulary of common words presented at a slow rate of speech. VOA says the service is a resource for those learning American English.
