The US State Department has demanded that all US citizens located in North Korea must exit the country before September 1. In an interview with Radio Sputnik, political analyst Sergei Zhuravsky said that by doing so the US is trying to demonstrate its determination to act harshly.

Earlier, Washington announced a ban on travel for the US citizens to the DPRK from early September due to “serious risk of arrest and prolonged detention.”
It was emphasized that US passports will no longer be valid for trips to North Korea or for transit via the country. The ban, which can be extended or, conversely, reduced, will be valid for one year.

An exception has been made only for the travel of journalists and humanitarian workers, as well as for travel “in the interests of the national security” of the United States.

Earlier, there were reports that the ban was imposed after the death of an American student, Otto Warmbier, who served a 17-month detention in a North Korean prison.
