We all have to remember North Korea is NOT a normal country.
They are brainwashed as hell.

According to Mr. Warmbier, Obama administration told them to keep a low profile. It does not look good for the Obama administration.
Similar thing happened to the abductees of Japanese citizens. Social Democratic Party (Japan) kept dismissing and denied and ignoring the existence of abductions while Abe and the previous administrations worked hard for the return of the abductees by putting pressures onto North Korea.
The lesson was North Korea only comes out to talk or compromise under certain pressure. Obama administration and their “strategic patience” did not help much.
