Trump and Kim pledged, in the first ever meeting between leaders of the old foes, to work toward complete denuclearisation of the Korean peninsula while Washington committed to providing security guarantees.

Trump made the comments about Warmbier after being pressed to expand on his comment that Kim, who leads a country known for many of its human rights abuses, was a "very talented" leader.

"The sanctions will come off when we are sure that the nukes are no longer a factor", Trump said in Singapore after his summit with Kim.

His parents are good friends of mine, ' Trump told reporters and a global TV audience after his nuclear summit with North Korean despot Kim Jong-un.

"Something happened from that day". "It was a bad thing, it was brutal, but a lot of people started to focus on what was going on - including North Korea". "But they will be doing things, and I think he wants to do things".

Otto Warmbier pictured being taken to court in Pyongyang in March 2016.

The Warmbiers declined through the law firm representing them in a wrongful-death lawsuit to comment beyond the statement.

Warmbier was released by the North Korean regime on June 12, 2017, and died one week after aged 22.

Warmbier was detained on January 2, 2016, as his tour group was departing, and accused of hostile acts against the country as an agent of the USA government - specifically, stealing a political poster from his hotel as a "trophy". When asked if he was tortured, she said she can't be sure what caused the lack of oxygen to the brain.

The general statement on "immediate repatriation" could refer to remains North Korea already has in storage but were never returned after joint recovery efforts were suspended in 2005 amid the political impasse over North Korean provocations and advances in its missile and nuclear programs.

U.S. Senator Rob Portman of OH said on Tuesday that the day he joined Warmbier's parents to welcome their son home almost a year ago "is a constant reminder to me about the evil nature of this regime".
