An Australian man studying at Kim Il-Sung University in Pyongyang, North Korea, is reportedly missing, and the Australian government is seeking “urgent clarification” about his whereabouts and well-being.

“The wife of Australian Alek Sigley, whom is believed missing in North Korea, says she is ‘very concerned,'” according to the Sydney Morning Herald. 

It has been confirmed that Sigley has been detained, but no more details have been provided. His family became worried after they lost contact with him after Tuesday.

Sigley has been studying in North Korea for two years, and wrote an opinion piece in The Guardian last year defending the public persona of the so-called Hermit Kingdom.

“I have nearly unprecedented access to Pyongyang. I’m free to wander around the city, without anyone accompanying me. Interaction with locals can be limited at times, but I can shop and dine almost anywhere I want,” he said in the piece.

“He is always trying to demystify North Korea unlike the typical Western media. He tries to understand the people there,” Sigley’s wife said of him.

Australia’s South Korean embassy has reportedly reached out to North Korea in an attempt to clarify the situation.

The situation is eerily similar to that of University of Virginia student Otto Warmbier, who was studying abroad in North Korea in 2016 and was arrested, allegedly for stealing a North Korean propaganda poster. He was imprisoned and returned to the United States in 2017 in a vegetative state. He died shortly thereafter.

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro Endorses Donald Trump’s Reelection

Ties have grown between America and Brazil in recent years.

Published

Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro announced his endorsement of President Donald Trump in an event signing a new trade agreement between the United States and Brazil on Tuesday in the South American country.

God willing I will be able to attend Trump’s second inauguration,” said Bolsonaro at a press conference detailing the new agreement with US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien. Bolsonaro wanted to emphasize that he does not wish to “interfere” with the US election, but that his support for President Trump comes from the heart.

Bolsonaro and Trump have coordinated on policy to contain Venezuelan and Cuban-style Communism within South America. NSA O’Brien stated that relations between the US and Brazil have “never been stronger” at the trade agreement signing. The US designated Brazil a “non-NATO” ally in 2019, and the two countries have worked together on environmental policy to deter wildfires in the Amazon rainforest.

The new “mini-trade deal” signed between the two countries will regulate telecommunications exchanges between the US and Brazil. Brazil, which is the second-most populous nation in the New World with 211 million people, is an increasingly significant country in global business and diplomatic affairs.

Bolsonaro himself is somewhat of a right-wing populist in the veins of global leaders such as Viktor Orban, Andrzej Duda, and President Trump. He won election in 2018 in a landslide, capitalizing on alienation among the Brazilian electorate for the socialist-style governments that had governed the country for over a decade, mass crime, and preferences for gun rights.

Establishment liberals frequently receive endorsement from globalist leaders across the world, and never think twice about not crying “foreign interference” in the event that it benefits them. President Bolsonaro isn’t an American, but it certainly bodes well to see the leader of the Americas’ second largest country develop a strong working relationship with President Trump.
