Trump ‘can’t jump ahead’ in North Korea negotiations: Leon Panetta

12 June 2018

"I think that without Otto this would not have happened".

Otto Warmbier was detained in North Korea in January 2016 after allegedly stealing a propaganda poster at his hotel during his five-day tour of the country.

Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student from OH, was imprisoned in North Korea in March 2016 after he was arrested for taking a poster from a hotel he was staying in while on a tourist visit to Pyongyang and sentenced to 15 years of hard labor.

He served 527 days of a 15-year sentence of hard labor, during which United States officials staged a surprise trip to Pyongyang last September and demanded that Pyongyang send him home on "humanitarian grounds".

Although human rights was not included in the joint statement signed by Trump and Kim, the USA president said he raised the issue and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to "do the right thing".

"I hated to do it", Mr. Trump told Mr. Hannity.

'I believe it's a rough situation over there, there's no question about it, and we did discuss it today pretty pretty good length, and we'll be doing something on it, ' he said. He is in a certain sense a real victor of this. We know where it is because of the heat.' It's incredible the equipment we have, to be honest with you.

In April, Warmbier's parents filed a lawsuit against North Korea, alleging that the government tortured and murdered their son.

"It's important for us to remember that it's largely words at this point, and that we have to look for actions, particularly from North Korea", Panetta said during an interview with FOX Business' Neil Cavuto on Tuesday. He died days later on June 19, and it is still not known what exactly killed him.

Warmbier's parents, Fred and Cindy Warmbier said they appreciated Trump's comments.

"When the South-North relations improve, we will push first for the recovery of remains in the Demilitarized Zone", the 154-mile-long, 2.5-mile-wide area separating the two Koreas, Moon said.

It doesn't say specifically that North Korea will give up its nuclear weapons, only that North Korea is committed to working towards complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. It embarrasses them. They don't like the world to think that they aren't trying to be a member of the world, and they like to act like a victim, like they've been treated poorly, ' she said.
