North Korea is claiming that U.S. officers forcibly seized a diplomatic package deal from one in every of their delegations at New York’s John F. Kennedy Airport.
The official Korean Central Information Company stated diplomats have been coming back from a UN convention on rights of individuals with disabilities on Friday when the package deal was taken, calling it an “unlawful and heinous act of provocation.”
A U.S. Division of Homeland Safety spokesman says its officers seized a number of media gadgets and packages from three North Korean residents. He says that based on the U.S. State Division, the three weren’t accredited members of North Korea’s UN Mission and had no diplomatic immunity.
The incident comes days after American school scholar Otto Warmbier was returned to the U.S. in a coma after being imprisoned in North Korea.
