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

Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta urged President Trump to heed caution while making concessions during negotiations with North Korea until leader Kim Jong Un begins to take steps toward denuclearizing the peninsula.

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 previous year in Charlottesville.

"His parents are good friends of mine".

"I think that without Otto this would not have happened". "Something happened from that day, was a bad thing".

In a post-summit interview with ABC's George Stephanopoulos, Trump said North Korea was "going to get rid of certain ballistic missile sites and various other things" but that they would "put that out later".

"Today I assured his dad, as the president said two days ago, their beloved son, Otto Warmbier, will not have died in vain", Pence said.

So, this is just the beginning of what is going to be a long and complicated road with many detours and bumps, no doubt and we will see what happens as it is going forward.

Warmbier, 22, was a student at the University of Virginia when he was arrested in North Korea in January 2016 for allegedly stealing a propaganda poster.

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".

In a news conference following the summit, Trump also praised North Korea's beaches "from a real estate perspective".

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.

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.

North Korean officials said Warmbier suffered a brain injury after contacting botulism, a form of poisoning, but USA doctors found no evidence of the condition.

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