The source, who spoke with The Daily NK on the 3rd, before Wen’s visit began, explained, “Since the 28th of last month, the authorities have been sending people from other provinces who are engaged in trade or business in the Pyongyang, Pyongsung and Nampo provinces back home. A prohibition against travel to other provinces during the Chuseok holiday due to the developing state of affairs’ has also been in force.”Another inside source residing near Pyongyang told Daily NK before Wen’s visit, “Actually, Pyongyang is in a state of emergency. 24-hour emergency standby orders have been dispatched to party and judicial organizations, as well as to border patrol units.” The source said, “In addition to the regulations governing entry and exit from Pyongyang and other key cities, the issuance of ‘travel permits’ has also ceased. However, with the exception of the area surrounding Pyongyang, movement within provinces has not been restricted.”Additionally, sources all said that since the North Korean authorities did not inform the people about the Chinese Premier’s visit, tensions were quite high at one point.One source stated, “At the beginning of October, the Party issued an order to Party and judicial organizations and border patrol units to enter a 24-hour emergency standby mode. Party workers and officials of the People’s Safety Agency and the National Security Agency received orders on the Chuseok holiday to visit their ancestral shrines in the morning and report to work in the afternoon.”“In particular, the border patrol units were in complete lockdown mode. They have doubled the size of patrol teams and toughened up patrol duties so that not even a single ant can cross the Tumen River.” Such measures imply that the North Korean authorities are concentrating their utmost efforts on maintaining order in anticipation of possible problems that could occur during Premier Wen’s visit.The North Korean authorities regulate the comings and goings of travelers whenever important national events such as the “Spring Arts Festival” take place in Pyongyang. In particular, emergency standby forces are dispatched to the army and judicial authorities when a foreign head of state comes on official business.
