BEIJING (AP) — Some Chinese travel agencies have cancelled tours to North Korea due to safety concerns as Pyongyang continues its war-like posturing. However, other Chinese operators say they still plan to take tourists in to the country.
North Korea has warned foreign companies and tourists to leave South Korea due to the threat of war and it has advised foreign diplomats in Pyongyang that it can't guarantee their safety past Wednesday.
A woman who refused to identify herself at the Explore North Korea travel agency in the border city of Dandong said group tourism had been suspended beginning Wednesday. She said they had received a notification from the National Tourism Administration warning against tourism to North Korea.
An official at the administration refused to comment.
