Warm­bier’s par­ents hope for ‘some­thing pos­i­tive’ from sum­mit

The Signal - - USA TODAY -

The par­ents of Otto Warm­bier said Tues­day they hope “some­thing pos­i­tive” can come out of the Sin­ga­pore sum­mit be­tween Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

Fred and Cindy Warm­bier of Wy­oming, Ohio, is­sued a state­ment after the two lead­ers met. Otto Warm­bier died soon after re­turn­ing to the U.S. from cap­tiv­ity in North Korea.

Trump said Otto Warm­bier’s death “was not in vain” and helped spur the na­tions to reach the diplo­matic talks.

“We ap­pre­ci­ate Pres­i­dent Trump’s re­cent com­ments about our fam­ily,” the Warm­biers said. “We are proud of Otto and miss him. Hope­fully some­thing pos­i­tive can come from this.”
