The former U.S. diplomat who secured the release from North Korea of American Otto Warmbier said on Monday that Washington should honor its pledge to pay Pyongyang $2 million for the student's hospital care.

Joseph Yun, the former U.S. special envoy for North Korea, confirmed to Reuters he had signed an agreement with the North Koreans for the payment of the money before Warmbier was flown out of Pyongyang in a coma on June 13, 2017.

He died days after returning home.

White House national security adviser John Bolton said in a television interview Sunday that while the agreement had been signed, no payment had been made to the North Koreans.

Yun, who retired from the State Department last year and is now a global affairs analyst for CNN, said on the network he believed the United States should honor its commitment.
