U.S. State Department Press Release on Otto Warmbier

PRESS STATEMENT

Rex W. Tillerson, Secretary of State, Washington, DC
(Jun. 19, 2017) — Today we received with deep sadness the news that Otto Warmbier has passed away.

On behalf of the entire State Department and the United States government, I extend my condolences to the Warmbier family, and offer my prayers as they enter a time of grief no parent should ever know.

We hold North Korea accountable for Otto Warmbier’s unjust imprisonment, and demand the release of three other Americans who have been illegally detained.
