Dennis Rodman Says He Got Otto Warmbier Released

"Although we had no reason at all to show mercy to such a criminal of the enemy state, we provided him with medical treatment and care with all sincerity on a humanitarian basis until his return to the USA, considering that his health got worse", read the statement carried by the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA).

Sun said that he was unfamiliar with the hotel hallway that appeared in the surveillance tape released by North Korean officials allegedly showing Warmbier's removing a poster from the wall. Trump has made halting the North Korean nuclear threat his number one foreign policy priority. "That's why it remains a mystery for us why he died just a week after returning home", the diplomat said. Speakers told those gathered that the US had never been able to subdue North Korea under former leader Kim Jong Il, and urged them to remain loyal to his son and current leader, Kim John Un. He said North Korea's treatment of Warmbier demonstrated "a basic disregard for human rights, for human dignity". Tillerson said the USA and Chinese officials had agreed that companies from both countries should not do business with any United Nations -designated North Korean entities. FILE- In this June 15, 2017, file photo, Fred Warmbier, father of Otto Warmbier, a University of Virginia undergraduate student who was imprisoned in North Korea in March 2016, speaks during a news conference at Wyoming. He recalled that the U.S. citizen, who had admitted his guilt, was sentenced by the court to hard labor "for subversive activities against North Korea". "He's so young, and he's been gone for so long", said Grady Beerck, 22, a former soccer teammate.

While Pyongyang accepted USA demands for Warmbier's return on humanitarian grounds, Washington "totally distorted this truth and dared to clamor about "retaliation" and "pressure" on "dignified" North Korea, the spokesman told KCNA.

Both events happened ahead of June 25, which is in North Korea's calendar as the "day of struggle against USA imperialism".

It was not clear if Trump's comment was based on news reports or if the White House had been given official notice. It cited five people briefed on the requests by Mueller's team who spoke on condition of anonymity.

Tillerson said Wednesday that China had a "diplomatic responsibility to exert much greater economic and diplomatic pressure on the regime if they want to prevent further escalation in the region". "I know being there had something to do with it", Volo told ABC News on Friday.

A separate KCNA article published hours earlier also criticized South Korea for using Warmbier's case to seek the release of other detainees, including six South Korean citizens. "They're so happy now, because it's more like... it's civilized again".

"To make it clear, we are the biggest victim of this incident and there would be no more foolish judgment than to think we do not know how to calculate gains and losses", the spokesman said. Whole families end up in the North Korean gulag under a 1972 dictum by the country's founder, Kim Il Sung: "Factionalists, or enemies of class, whoever they are, their seed must be eliminated through three generations".
