Trump to make announcement on Comey recordings

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

China's Foreign Ministry said earlier on Wednesday that Beijing had made "unremitting efforts" to resolve tensions on the Korean peninsula, not as a result of external pressure but because China was a responsible member of the global community and resolving nuclear issues was in its own interests.

"What you are seeing, I think, is the American people's frustration with a regime that provokes and provokes and provokes".

Before his arrest, Warmbier seemed to be having a good time in North Korea.

Warmbier was among the estimated 5,000 non-Chinese who visit North Korea every year on packages that often include trips to Pyongyang, the capital, as well as the demilitarized zone separating the two Koreas, Mount Paektu and sometimes the Masik ski resort.

UK-based Lupine Travel managing director Dylan Harris told AFP that the company was also reconsidering whether to cater to Americans, "but for all other nationalities there will be no change". He was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for trying to steal an item bearing a propaganda slogan from his hotel in Pyongyang, the nation's state media said.

Any number of factors could be behind the deterioration in Warmbier's health during his time in prison: poor hygienic conditions, malnutrition or lack of proper medical care may have been responsible for a coma that North Korean doctors were unable to treat.

Let us state the facts plainly: Otto Warmbier, an American citizen, was murdered by the Kim Jong-un regime.

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

During the joint press conference with Tillerson, US defence secretary James Mattis accused North Korea of being "beyond any kind of understanding of law and order and humanity".

Mattis says China shares the USA desire for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, and "continues to work this issue".

In Congress, Democrats and Republicans found rare bipartisan consensus in denouncing North Korea.

Relatives have said they were told by USA envoys that North Korean officials claimed Warmbier contracted botulism after his trial and lapsed into a coma after taking a sleeping pill. I think we'll continue to apply that, and as I mentioned earlier, obviously, China can play - has played and can continue to play a greater role in helping to resolve this situation, and we will continue to hopefully build on the relationship and the dialogue that we've had with China.

From Capitol Hill to the White House, pressure is mounting for a tough USA response.
