Canada FM urges US, North Korea to step back

OTTAWA-A pastor in ontario, who was serving a sentence of life in prison in North Korea finally returned to the country Saturday.

Informing Lim's arrival to the country, Global Affairs Canada said in a statement: "Today, we join Pastor Lim's family and congregation in celebrating his long-awaited return to Canada".

"I think that North Korea understood that it was on thinner ice than usual", he said, referencing the case of Otto Warmbier, an American University student who fell into a coma while imprisoned in North Korea - he was released June 13, but died six days later.

The family asked the public to respect their privacy, allowing him to rest for a day and catch up with family before appearing in public on Sunday to attend services at his church.

Mr Lundberg, however, noted that in spite of the incident, UN's relationship of trust and collaboration with the government of Nigeria remained intact.

Lim arrived in Toronto in the late morning Saturday, and is "landed and resting", according to a press release from his family.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau sent his national security adviser to North Korea to seek Lim's freedom.

The announcement came amid heightened tensions between Washington and Pyongyang, though authorities have not said there is any connection between his release and efforts to defuse the standoff over North Korea's nuclear program.

It's possible the regime is being more cautious with Mr. Lim's health problems, Mr. Denney said.

The True Blood actress became a hot topic on social media after a news video accidentally displayed her breasts to audiences. True Blood co-stars Stephen Moyer, Evan Rachel Wood and Robert Kazinsky also tweeted about the incident.

Lim was arrested in 2015 for allegedly meddling in North Korean state affairs.

The Korean Central News Agency on Wednesday reported the pastor had been released on what it called "sick bail", but no other details were given.

Canada does not have diplomatic offices in Pyongyang and relies on Sweden to handle consular issues.

"He is doing very well, considering everything he has gone through", he said.
