The entry by Malaysian police points toward an agreement on the processing of Kim Jong-nam's body, as well as on the recording of statements by the three suspected accomplices said to be holed up in the embassy, the report says.
A Malaysian policeman controls traffic outside the forensics wing of Hospital Kuala Lumpur, where the body of Kim Jong-nam, the half brother of North Korea's leader Kim Jong-un, lies in Kuala Lumpur on Monday.
The remains of Kim Jong-Nam (pix), the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un, was released today by the Kuala Lumpur Hospital (HKL) for repatriation to his family - 41 days after he was murdered with a nerve agent at klia2 on Feb 13. Song said that THAAD should be used as leverage to motivate China to play a more active role in connection with North Korea's nuclear weapons and missiles.
"The overwhelming support for this resolution shows the resounding commitment of the global community to ensure that Kim Jong-un and North Korea's rights-abusing authorities don't escape justice".
The body of Kim Jong-nam is still in a Malaysian morgue, more than a six weeks after he was killed in a targeted attack at Kuala Lumpur International Airport, it has emerged.
North Korea's test of a rocket engine last weekend was accompanied by the usual state media propaganda - but one image of its leader celebrating stood out in particular.
"I'll have to check with the Forensics Department if there had been any requirement to take the body out, but as far as we are concerned, the status quo has not changed".
"Once they finish the discussion and come to a definite decision, we will make an announcement", he said, in reference to the negotiations.
Kim's death has sparked a diplomatic dispute, with the countries imposing an exit ban on each other's citizens.
We don't fault Tillerson or President Trump for responding to recent North Korean missile tests. Malaysia reacted swiftly, banning the hundreds of North Koreans working here from leaving the country. Authorities also say they are looking for seven North Koreans. The two women accused of fatally attacking Kim Jong-nam have been charged with murder.
The U.N. agreed to ramp up its investigations on crimes against humanity committed by North Korea for use in future prosecutions on Friday, on the final day of a four week session.
