DPRK’s government denies tortures against 22-year-old Otto Warmbier, who was serving sentence in North Korean prison and died soon after return to the United States, according to BBC.

Particularly, Pyongyang states that the student was treated "in accordance with international rules", and considers complaints by the student's parents about the horrible treatment of their son unfounded.

The agency notes that this is the first official reaction of DPRK on Otto Warmbier’s death.

As it is known, North Korean court sentenced Warmbier, who came for New Year holidays, to 15 years of imprisonment for an attempt to steal an agitation poster from the hotel. American student was returned to the motherland in a coma on June 13 this year. He died in his house in Cincinnati, the U.S. state of Ohio, on June 19.
