McCain: Americans 'stupid' to still want to travel to N.Korea

McCain: Americans 'stupid' to still want to travel to N.Korea

There was no immediate word from the family about why relatives declined an autopsy, which may have shed more light on the cause of the neurological injuries that left him in a coma.

Mr Warmbier, 22, died on Monday after being medically evacuated to the United States last week after suffering from severe brain damage, with US President Donald Trump blaming Pyongyang's "brutal regime" for his plight.

Warmbier, an OH native and student at the University of Virginia, was arrested in North Korea in January 2016 while visiting as a tourist.

Warmbier was accused of stealing a propaganda poster and arrested on January 2, 2016, while on a tour during his junior year at the University of Virginia.

Three Americans remain held in North Korea.

Republican Sen. Rob Portman said North Korea should be "universally condemned for its abhorrent behavior". But its responses are limited because North Korea has nuclear weapons, he said. "It puts us in a really precarious situation when Americans are detained there".

After an examination of Otto Warmbier's body, Hamilton County Coroner Dr. Laskshmi Sammarco says his death is still a mystery. It said the flights demonstrated solidarity among South Korea, Japan and the United States "to defend against provocative and destabilizing actions in the Pacific theater". Fred Warmbier, the student's father, has said he disbelieves this account.

Tensions between the United States and North Korea have been heightened by dozens of North Korean missile launches and two nuclear bomb tests since past year in defiance of U.N. Security Council resolutions.

The Republican lawmakers were not alone in their anger, as President Trump called the Warmbier family's ordeal a "terrible disgrace".

"What you are seeing I think is the American people's frustration with the regime that provokes and provokes and provokes and basically [is] playing outside the rules, plays fast and loose with the truth, that sort of thing".

Geng said China has played a "positive constructive" role regarding North Korea because it is a responsible member of the worldwide community, and "not because of any pressure from other countries".

The meeting of top US and Chinese diplomats and defence chiefs was held a day after President Donald Trump said Chinese efforts to use its leverage with Pyongyang had failed, raising fresh doubts about his administration's strategy for countering the threat from North Korea.

"And we've had I think positive movement on China over the past five months of this administration".

"I believe it's going to set back any serious discussion about a diplomatic dialogue until this is cleared up", former governor Bill Richardson of New Mexico, an expert on North Korea who has helped extricate Americans held there, said of Warmbier's death.
