The family of a United States student who died after he was jailed in North Korea have implicitly rebuked the US President Donald Trump’s praise of Kim Jong-un.
Otto Warmbier’s parents said they had been “respectful” during President Trump and the North Korean leader’s recent summit, but were now speaking out.
They said “no excuse or lavish praise can change” that “Kim and his evil regime” killed their son.
Their statement came after Mr Trump heaped compliments on Mr Kim.
President Donald Trump’s second nuclear summit with Mr Kim this week in Vietnam ended without agreement.
After the family’s blistering statement was released, Mr Trump took to Twitter where he said he had been “misinterpreted”.
