Otto Warmbier's parents: ‘Hopefully something positive' will come from Trump-Kim summit

Trump and Kim signed a document on Tuesday stating that Pyongyang would work toward "complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula".

Trump, who said that human rights did come up during the talks and that he would hold further conversations on the subject in the future, was responding to a journalist who asked how he could feel so comfortable calling Kim "talented" when the North Korean leader had had some of his own family members killed, starved his own people, and was responsible for Warmbier's death.

Warmbier, a 22-year-old University of Virginia student, was touring North Korea when he was arrested for allegedly stealing a propaganda sign. Dems lack heir apparent this time MORE and Kim Jong Un will result in something "positive". Think of it from a real estate perspective.

Donald Trump told reporters that his meeting with Kim Jong Un "would not have happened" without Otto Warmbier. "We will be there together with North Korea along the way", Moon said in a statement.

'We are trying to build a pathway that leads directly to Kim and his regime to force them to be answerable for their actions, ' Mr. Warmbier said. There is split here: some people are downplaying the importance of what is actually outlined and others are saying "this was a great result and more than we could actually have hoped for". "Anyone that takes over a situation like he did at 26 years of age and is able to run it and run it tough - I won't say it's nice, I won't say anything about it". It has got a lot of great language in it about improving relations, moving towards peace and prosperity, a stable peace regime, but nearly nothing concrete is offered. By then, he had spend 17 months a North Korean prison. And perhaps the only specific item mentioned in a declaration is commitment to recovering US POW [prisoners of war] remains from the Korean War, which is very important, but really is not the top priority towards achieving peace on the Korean Peninsula. Trump said the negotiations he has initiated should help improve conditions in the isolated country, which successive US administrations have targeted for gross human rights violations.

"So I think the rhetoric - I hated to do it".

"Building upon the agreement reached today, we will take a new path going forward".
