“Kim and his evil regime are responsible for the death of our son, Otto. Kim and his evil regime are responsible for unimaginable cruelty and inhumanity.
“No excuses or lavish praise can change that.”

After the family issued the statement, Mr Trump replied on Twitter to say “of course” the North Korean leader held responsibility.

Mr Trump wrote: “I never like being misinterpreted, but especially when it comes to Otto Warmbier and his great family. Remember, I got Otto out along with three others.
“The previous Administration did nothing, and he was taken on their watch. Of course I hold North Korea responsible for Otto’s mistreatment and death.

“Most important, Otto Warmbier will not have died in vain. Otto and his family have become a tremendous symbol of strong passion and strength, which will last for many years into the future. I love Otto and think of him often!”

University of Virginina student Mr Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years of hard labour in 2016 in North Korea after he was arrested on suspicion of stealing a propaganda poster.

He died in June 2017, shortly after her arrived to the US in a coma.
