SEOUL, Dec. 10 (Yonhap) -- Trade between the United States and North Korea reached US$2.45 million in October, a U.S. report showed Saturday.

The bilateral trade volume was comprised completely of aid goods offered by the U.S. to the communist state, the Voice of America (VOA) reported citing data compiled by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The VOA said the Department of Commerce did not give specifics on what kinds of goods were shipped to North Korea, but the goods traded are considered humanitarian aid products as the two countries are not engaged in commercial trade.

In the first 10 months of the year, the bilateral trade reached $6.24 million, compared with $1.90 million a year earlier, the report said.
