Pence meets with N. Korean defectors in S. Korea

Pence arrived in South Korea on Thursday (February 8). Pence, who was accompanied by his wife Karen and Fred Warmbier, father of Otto Warmbier, the American college student who was held prisoner in North Korea and died shortly after he returned to the U.S. last year, praised the defectors for the ‘courage.’ He was expected to pay tribute at a memorial for 46 South Korean sailors killed in 2010 in the sinking of a warship that Seoul blamed on a North Korean torpedo attack.

North Korea’s ceremonial leader and Pence are set for their first face-to-face encounter on Friday when they attend the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
