  • North Korea detains US citizen Kim Sang Duk

North Korea has detained a US citizen on suspicion of "hostile acts" against the regime, the state-run Korean Central News Agency reported Sunday.

KCNA, North Korea's state agency said he was held on Saturday because they suspected he commits "hostile acts" and that a "detailed investigation into his crimes" was ongoing. "He went to Pyongyang to devote himself to the development of North Korea's agricultural technology so that the North can be self-sufficient with food", said David Kim, who studied with Kim Hak-song in the U.S.

While the new USA administration has repeatedly said all options, including a military strike, are on the table, Trump also recently said he does not rule out meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un if an appropriate environment is created.

In late-April, North Korean authorities arrested Kim Sang-dok, another US citizen affiliated with PUST, for hostile acts as well. She said PUST told her over the phone that Kim had boarded a train in Pyongyang. "We are well-aware of it, and we are going to work through the embassy of Sweden. through our State Department to seek the release of the individuals there".

Faced with the possibility of another round of nuclear or missile tests, President Donald Trump has said he won't rule out military action against North Korea, though he also said he would be willing to talk with Kim Jong Un under the right circumstances.

"Just a week or two ago, we had an awareness event in Washington D.C. where North Korean defectors came and spoke about their experiences and we heard from refugees".

He was living in China near the border with North Korea and working in a special economic zone in the largely isolated country as president of a trade and hospitality company.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday that North Korean ruler Kim Jong Un may be "a little unhinged". "When you are not credible about Syria, you're not credible about North Korea". Kim Dong-chul, who was born in South Korea but became a USA citizen in 1987, was sentenced to 10 years of hard labor last April on charges of spying. The latest arrests of United States citizens come at a particularly tense moment. He became a US citizen in the 2000s, then returned to China.

It was reported that a fourth USA citizen was detained a day earlier by Pyongyang on suspicion of hostile acts.

And Kim Dong Chul is serving 10 years of hard labor after being jailed on subversion charges.
