BBC published an article about safety of traveling to North Korea. Our company gives an interview: Will people still travel to North Korea?

“Andre Wittig of Berlin-based Pyongyang Travel agrees that North Korea remains a country that’s safe to visit. “There’s not been a single time that we’ve had a situation that was even close to difficult,” he told the BBC.
