China tried, but failed, to help on North Korea

China tried, but failed, to help on North Korea

Trump tweeted Tuesday, "While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out".

Chris Coons wonders why anyone still travels to North Korea, and says the death of American student Otto Warmbier after a year-long imprisonment in the communist dictatorship is "tantamount to murder".

Mr Trump had held high hopes for greater cooperation from China to exert influence over North Korea, leaning heavily on Chinese President Xi Jinping for his assistance. "I wish we would have a little more help with respect to North Korea, from China".

An Ohio coroner will not perform an autopsy on the United States student who died after being held prisoner in North Korea for 17 months and will perform an external examination of the body at the family's request.

Trump's tweet was channeling the American people's frustration with North Korea as a "regime that provokes" and "plays outside the rules", Mattis said.

Sunshine To Start, Clouds Later
Summer officially began at 12:24 Wednesday morning and it was a fairly comfortable start to the season as the humidity stayed low. Friday looks like it will be pretty warm and humid, with a high in the upper 80s and a good chance of showers or thunderstorms.

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis are expected to meet with Chinese officials Wednesday. Warmbier was on a Chinese sponsored tour when he was taken into custody and accused of crimes against the state.

The family of American college student Otto Warmbier objected to an autopsy, leaving the former North Korea detainee's official cause of death a mystery for the time being.

He was medically evacuated last week and returned to the U.S.in a coma.

Otto Warmbier, 22, suffered severe brain damage in North Korea and died on Monday following 18 months of captivity in North Korea after he was sentenced to hard labor for stealing a political poster from a hotel.

Spicer also noted that the State Department is mulling new travel restrictions to and from North Korea.

But other analysts said that however horrific the case might be, the Trump administration was unlikely to let it upset the momentum toward dialogue it has built.

American concern is growing over North Korea's acceleration toward having a nuclear missile that can strike the US mainland.

Warmbier's parents haven't cited a cause of death, but "awful, torturous mistreatment" by North Korea.

"I think there have been some positive steps that they've taken, both at the United Nations and economically, to help strengthen the case against North Korea".

Washington has one threat it can use with Beijing: The possibility of "secondary" sanctions that go after Chinese companies doing business in North Korea.
