Below is an email from my FNC colleague James Rosen:
The following is attributable to State Dept. Spokesperson Jen Psaki:
Secretary Kerry met January 28 with the family of Kenneth Bae.
There is no greater priority for us than the welfare and safety of U.S. citizens abroad.
Kenneth Bae has apologized publicly for actions that led to his April 30, 2013 conviction. Mr. Bae’s family has also apologized publicly on behalf of Kenneth Bae.
We fully support the efforts of the Bae family to bring Kenneth Bae home. We continue to urge the DPRK to pardon Bae for his actions and grant him amnesty and immediate release.
