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