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

The Kims have ruled North Korea since the Soviet Union designated Kim Jong Un's grandfather, Kim ll-Sung, as Communist leader in 1948.

'I think without Otto this would not have happened.

He says, "The past does not have to define the future".

North Korean officials accused Trump of overdramatizing Warmbier's condition in an effort to pressure Pyongyang over its nuclear weapons arsenal.

"I think without Otto, this would not have happened", Trump said.

Trump says human rights did come up during the talks, albeit briefly.

'No, I think I've helped them, because I think things will change.

China urges 'full denuclearization' as Kim, Trump meet
North Korea has called for an end to the exercises as part of the United States' ending its "hostile policy" toward the country.

Their first moments together were picked apart for any clues about how the political heavyweights would match up.

"Otto Warmbier is a very special person, his parents are good friends of mine", Trump told reporters from Singapore after he and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un signed an agreement committing to "complete denuclearization".

"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. After falling into a coma, Warmbier was brought back to the USA but died shortly afterwards. "It was a awful thing, it was brutal, but a lot of people started to focus on what was going on - including North Korea".

The U.S. president said he raised the issue of human rights with Kim, and he believed the North Korean leader wanted to 'do the right thing.' He said the negotiations he has initiated should help improve conditions in the isolated country.

Trump, who has in the past condemned North Korea as one of the world's most brutal regimes, said he had discussed human rights with Kim.

Cindy and Fred Warmbier said in the civil suit filed at Washington District Court that their son was imprisoned by North Korea, after being forced to confess to stealing a poster, while he was in the country on a tourist visit in early February 2016. "He had a lot to do with us being here today". At a certain point, I really think he's going to do something about it'.

In April, Warmbier's parents filed a lawsuit against North Korea, alleging that the government tortured and murdered their son. But doctors in Cincinnati found no evidence of botulism - yet also said there were no signs of fractures to indicate he was beaten into the coma. How can I not?
