Importantly, the one-year ban will expire at the end of this month and the State Department must decide its fate. Based on North Koreas recent positive diplomatic steps toward the United States and South Korea, the ban should be allowed to expire.

They released the three detained Americans and returned 55 cases with presumed remains of the U.S. soldiers who died during the Korean War. Provocative missile and nuclear tests were halted. Allowing the ban to expire would signal a reciprocal measure and build confidence with North Korea. Ending the ban would also open the door for additional diplomatic opportunities to take root.

Tharappel, who spent nine days in North Korea courtesy of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea (DPRK) Committee for Cultural Relations with Foreign Countries, wrote that the inequality in the country pales in comparison to the inequality you see in the capitalist world, said that the Kim Jong-uns authoritarianism was necessary for the simple reason that they are a nation at war, and disputed the account of most visitors to the country who say they are closely chaperoned.

It says the government routinely uses arbitrary arrest and punishment of crimes, torture in custody, forced labor, and executions to maintain fear and control. North Korea has in recent years attempted to kickstart its tourism industry. But travellers must visit with an authorised tour operator and be accompanied at all times.
