WASHINGTON, October 21. /TASS/. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the US national Jeffrey Fowle detained in May for what North Korea qualified as “unacceptable conduct” has been released and sent home.
“While this is a positive decision… we remain focused on the continued detention of Kenneth Bae and Matthew Miller and again call on the DPRK to immediately release them,” Earnest said.
South Korea welcomed the release of the American citizen and called on Pyongyang to release the others.
Media in North Korea have not reported about the release of Jeffrey Fowle as of yet.
According to the Korean Central News Agency (KCNA), the 56-year-old American was arrested for unacceptable conduct. Fowle, who arrived in North Korea on April 29 as a tourist, did things violating laws of our country, its report said.
The Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the United States have no diplomatic relations. The Swedish Embassy represents Washington’s interests in Pyongyang. Tensions have for many years persisted in relations between the two countries.
