Psaki said in her statement that Swedish embassy officials had met 10 times with Bae since his detention.

“We continue to work actively to secure Mr Bae’s release,” she said, adding that the offer to send King to the North was still open.

King was invited to North Korea to discuss Bae’s case at the end of August last year, but Pyongyang rescinded the invitation at the 11th hour without explanation.
