Trump credits Warmbier for NK summit: 'Otto did not die in vain'

"His parents are good friends of mine".

South Korean President Moon Jae-in, whose efforts were crucial in bringing Trump and Kim together, said there would be no turning back on an agreement that held out the prospect for lasting peace on the peninsula.

I think, suspending military exercises is the one thing the United States can rather un-problematically do in order to get concessions from North Korea, because lifting sanctions, at this point, before North Korea moves forward toward denuclearization, will encounter a lot of resistance from other people in the American political system.

Trump's complimentary words about Kim and North Korea have also raised cries of alarm-his statement that things were "rough" in North Korea but also "rough in a lot of places" echoed the "violence on many sides" that drew ire after protests a year ago in Charlottesville.

"Something happened from that day". It was brutal. A lot of people started to focus on what was going on, including North Korea'. I told that to his parents.

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

Warmbier, 22, was accused in January 2016 of trying to steal a propaganda banner while visiting the country.


However, he was released by North Korea on "humanitarian grounds" in June 2017 and sent home in a coma, where doctors described his condition as "unresponsive wakefulness".

"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.

A coroner disputed claims by Warmbier's parents that his teeth were damaged, and said her office's post-mortem exam indicated he had been well tended to in the year since something unknown starved his brain of oxygen.

The Trump-Kim summit "opened the door to ending seven decades of hostility between the two countries", says The New York Times in a live briefing on all the nitty gritty details.

According to the Defense Department's POW/MIA Accounting Agency, more than 7,800 Americans have not been accounted for from the war, and about 5,300 of that total are believed to have been lost in battle in North Korea or buried at prisoner-of-war camps.

Kim said he is destroying a major missile engine testing site.
