N Korea trip is private, humanitarian: Richardson

Richardson also said today he`s concerned about a US citizen detained in North Korea, Kenneth Bae, and has spoken to Bae`s son.



Washington: Former New Mexico Gov Bill Richardson says the US State Department should not be nervous about a visit he`s making to North Korea with Google`s executive chairman, Eric Schmidt.

The former UN ambassador calls the mission a private and humanitarian one. The State Department has advised against the trip. But Richardson says he doesn`t work for the US government.

Richardson also said today he`s concerned about a US citizen detained in North Korea, Kenneth Bae, and has spoken to Bae`s son.

Richardson points out he has helped negotiate the release of US service members and hostages in the past.

Richardson says he`s also concerned about what the US believes is covert North Korean nuclear testing.
