Senators call for reinstating North Korea as state sponsor of terrorism

NHK reported that the parents of Otto Warmbier, who died after being held prisoner in North Korea for more than a year, met with Senate Majority Whip Cornyn and called for the re-designation of North Korea as a state sponsor of terrorism. The network also reported online that Cornyn and 11 other influential senators from both parties sent a letter to Secretary of State Tillerson that reportedly calls on the Secretary to consider putting North Korea back on the list of state sponsors of terrorism since the reclusive state is accelerating its nuclear and missile programs and taking violent actions.
