US to ban travel to N. Korea

    2017-August-4  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE United States has set a September 1 start date for a ban prohibiting its citizens from traveling to North Korea.

“The Department of State has determined that the serious risk to United States nationals of arrest and long-term detention represents imminent danger to the physical safety of United States nationals traveling to and within the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea,” read the restriction as it appeared in the U.S. Government’s Federal Register Wednesday.

“All United States passports are declared invalid for travel to, in, or through the DPRK unless specially validated for such travel,” it added.

An exemption was noted for approved humanitarian travel and for journalists in some circumstances. The ban is to remain in effect for a year, unless it is revoked sooner by U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.

The travel ban was first announced last month in the wake of the death of American student Otto Warmbier who fell into a coma after being imprisoned by Pyongyang during a tourist visit.

Warmbier, 22, a University of Virginia student, died in June after being held for more than a year on charges of stealing a propaganda poster from a North Korean hotel. He had been sent home in a coma that later proved fatal.

His death added to already high tensions in the region over North Korea’s weapons ambitions, culminating in two test launches of intercontinental ballistic missiles by Pyongyang in recent weeks.

North Korea has alarmed the international community by the pace and progress of its missile development program.
