Trump says China efforts on N.Korea 'have not worked out'

The United States holds North Korea accountable for its treatment of U.S. student Otto Warmbier and wants three other U.S. citizens detained by Pyongyang to be freed as soon as possible, the U.S. State Department said on Tuesday.

Warmbier was arrested in January 2016 for allegedly trying to steal an item showing a propaganda slogan, and was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour in March.

If Washington imposed sanctions on Chinese enterprises dealing with North Korea, it would lead to "grave friction" between the two countries, wrote the paper, which does not represent Chinese government policy.

He handles North Korean issues for the Department of State and met with North Korean officials in Norway and NY about Warmbier's release.

As a presidential candidate and in his first months in office, Trump sought to recruit the help of China in reining in North Korea's nuclear and weapons programs.

He said that if Trump could resolve the North Korean nuclear issue and bring peace to the Korean Peninsula and overall greater security in northeastern Asia, it would probably be the US president's greatest diplomatic achievement.

Warmbier died on Monday after returning to his hometown in OH, triggering outrage in the United States.

President Donald Trump says the death of a 22-year-old college student who was detained for almost a year and a half in North Korea is a "total disgrace".

Even as Warmbier's family prepared to mourn him at a public funeral service Thursday in OH, the circumstances behind his death remained unclear.

Trump says he spoke with Warmbier's parents and says it's "incredible what they've gone through".

China has tightened controls on trade in North Korean coal, but many doubt that Beijing will truly enforce any sanctions that might threaten the stability of its unpredictable neighbor.

American doctors who examined Otto found evidence of severe brain damage that may have been caused by a traumatic injury, according to Town Hall.

He's tells The Associated Press that "It puts us in a really precarious situation when Americans are detained" in North Korea.

South Korea in recent years has repeatedly accused the North of flying suspected spy drones across the tense border bisecting the peninsula. President Donald Trump has been counting on China to use its economic leverage over Kim Jong Un's totalitarian government.

The U.S. Department of State warns against travel to North Korea.

Wambier's parents did not cite a specific cause of death, but cited "awful, torturous mistreatment" by North Korea. Young Pioneer Tours said Tuesday on Facebook that his death shows that the risk American tourists face in visiting North Korea "has become too high". In the wake of Warmbier's death, Chan said the company will continue that suspension.

In an interview with a foreign media outlet, Moon said, "it is deplorable that North Korea does not respect human rights, which are the universal norms and values of humankind".
