U.S. Sen. Rob Portman says North Korea must be held accountable for what happened to an American college student who was detained there for over a year and died after being returned home to OH in a coma.
Meanwhile, Rodman and his agent feel they are partially responsible for the North Korea's release of American college student Otto Warmbier, who died last Monday, just days after being medically evacuated from a North Korean prison on the day the former National Basketball Association star arrived.
But the state-run Korean Central News Agency said Friday said that Warmbier was treated in accordance with domestic law.
North Korea reportedly told a US official that Warmbier contracted botulism and slipped intothe coma after taking a sleeping pill - they claimed to have released the student on "humanitarian grounds". "CLEARLY A CRIMINAL" U.S. President Donald Trump blamed "the brutality of the North Korean regime" for Warmbier's death.
Doctors in the United States who examined Warmbier after his release by North Korea said he had suffered a severe neurological injury from an unknown cause. KCNA said the North dealt with Warmbier according to domestic law and global standards.
He was arrested in January 2016 at the airport in Pyongyang for allegedly trying to steal a propaganda poster while he was visiting North Korea on a sightseeing tour organized by a Chinese-based company. "It's nearly just trying to reach out for sports and see if I can bring sports to North Korea", Rodman said.
As the United States urges China to exert great pressure on North Korea, U.S. spy satellites have detected new activity around the regime's known nuclear test site, leading to speculation Pyongyang may be getting ready to conduct yet another round of missile tests.Читайте также: Radio Club holds a 24 hour field exercise
"The fact that Warmbier died suddenly in less than a week just after his return to the USA in his normal state of health indicators is a mystery to us as well", he said.
"The fact that Warmbier died suddenly in less than a week just after his return to the USA in his normal state of health indicators is a mystery to us as well", state-run KCNA news reported. Trump wrote on Twitter on Tuesday, a day after Warmbier died following his return from captivity in a coma.
"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.
While the United States officials stressed agreement on the goal of North Korean denuclearisation, the talks also dealt with China's sweeping territorial claims in the South China Sea, with the Americans reaffirming opposition to Beijing's militarisation of islands it is building in the strategic waterway.
The Hamilton County Coroner's Office in OH examined the 22-year-old's body after his death Monday, and honored his family's wish not to have an autopsy.
"No conclusions about the cause and manner of Mr. Warmbier's death have been drawn at this time as there are additional medical records and imaging to review and people to interview", the coroner's office statement said.
The North's foreign ministry spokesman put the blame for Warmbier's death on the previous U.S. administration of Barack Obama which it said had "not even once" made an official request for his release. "We have to just follow the evidence and just realize that the North Korean explanation is not accurate", said Chang. "The North Koreans need to be held to accountable for that".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
