North Korea Releases American Prisoners

By Kenneth White

At the end of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s visit to the embattled Republic of North Korea, three American prisoners were released to travel with him to Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. One of the prisoners is a pastor and the other a self described missionary with connections to the Pyongyang University of Science and Technology, which was founded by evangelical Christians and teaches children of North Korean elites. President Trump is expected to attend the event of their landing on US soil.

The three Americans are Tony Kim, Kim Dong Chul and Kim Hak-song. All three were accused of espionage and hostile acts. All prisoners were in relatively good condition and were able to board a plane under their own power. South Korea praised the release and called it “very positive for a successful North Korean-United States summit”, which is a talk concerning nuclear weapon manufacturing in North Korea due to commence soon. The Vice Chairman of North Korea’s ruling Workers’ Party was quoted as saying, “I hope the United States also will be happy with our success…I have high expectations the U.S. will play a very big role in establishing peace on the Korean Peninsula.”
