Responding to the travel ban to North Korea imposed by the U.S. government on its citizens, the DPRK said that their doors are "wide open" for U.S. citizens.
The Democratic People's Republic of Korea responded to the recent travel ban to their country imposed on U.S. citizens by the U.S. Department of State, accusing the U.S. government of censoring the “true picture of the DPRK” by limiting “people-to-people exchange “We will always leave our door wide open to any U.S. citizen who would like to visit our country out of good will and to see the realities with their own eyes,” an article in the North Korean news-agency KCNA quoted a foreign minister as saying.
“There isn't any reason for the foreigners to feel threat to their safety in the DPRK, which has the most stable and strong state system, and numerous foreigners including Americans who visited our country unanimously agree on this,” the spokesperson said.
The travel ban was announced earlier this week, and will take effect on September 1st. The U.S. Department of State has ordered all U.S. citizens currently in the country to leave by that date, and beyond that date any unauthorized travel will result in the revocation of one's U.S. passport.
