North Korea has canceled for a second time its invitation for a senior U.S. envoy to visit the country to discuss a long-detained American's possible release, the State Department said Monday.
The family of a Washington man imprisoned nearly a year-and-a-half in North Korea says it's alarmed and saddened the country has canceled a second invitation for a U.S. envoy to talk about his release.
The sister of an American detained for more than a year in North Korea echoed her brother's apology to the nation for crimes he committed and his plea to the U.S. government to ramp up efforts to secure his release.
The family of an American missionary held more than a year in North Korea was heartbroken and encouraged by a brief news conference in which Kenneth Bae, wearing a gray cap and inmate's uniform with the number 103 on his chest, apologized and said he committed anti-government acts.
But she said the family is encouraged by a growing number of people calling for his freedom - Jackson in particular.
Bae's sister, Terri Chung, said the family is alarmed and saddened that North Korea has rescinded the invitation.
