Otto Warmbier was an American student who died after he was imprisoned with hard labor for 15 years in North Korea back in March 2016.
His mother who is still furious about it, came out with a statement on Friday, as she called North Korea a “cancer’’ while she was speaking at a Hudson Institute event.
‘’North Korea, to me is a cancer on the Earth. If we ignore this cancer, it’s not going to go away, it’s going to kill all of us.’’
According to The Hill, Warmbier added that the only way the nation will ever change is if the U.S. keeps up its pressure on Pyongyang, as she compared the prisons in North Korea with concentration camps from World War 2.
‘’The only difference between Hitler and North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un is that he is doing it all of his people.’’
Her son, Otto Warmbier’s death shocked the world three years ago, as he was sentenced to 15 years of hard labor in North Korea after being accused of stealing a propaganda poster while on a tourist trip. He fell into a coma while imprisoned and died at a very young age of 22 after being returned home in the United States.
This comes during a time when North Korea and the United States make efforts to make a deal for denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and President Donald Trump pressure North Korean leader Kim Jong Un from all sides.
