US Detainees Freed in a Suspicious Act by Kim Jong Un

Is President Trump bringing peace between the US and North Korea? Washington and Pyongyang were known to be talking about a possible repatriation for US detainees in North Korea and according to South Korean news agency Yonhap, the detainees were relocated to a hotel near Pyongyang. According to The New York Post, the “trio,” as the white house has referred to them as, will be released during or prior to Kim Jong Un’s meeting with President Trump.

“We believe that Mr. Trump can take them back on the day of the US-North Korea summit or he can send an envoy to take them back to the US before the summit,”Choi Sung-ryong, a South Korean activist told the Financial times.

The three detainees are US citizens and were freed from a labor camp and given health care and ideological indoctrination in Pyongyang, according to The Financial Times. Kim Dung-chul, KimSang-duk and Kim Hak-son, the detainees, have been accused of espionage or “hostile acts,” according to the New York Post.

The releases have not been confirmed by the State Department, but the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo has reported to have pressed Kim about the detainees when they met last month around Easter. Read more about this story from The New York Post here.
