They would allow americans if and only if your intentions are true...nothing more or less.
The problem is that on both sides the people are being punished for the actions of their governments. Most people that I know here in the USA don't care one way or the other about the DPRK as long as they stop threatening the USA.
How can they know my intentions? That's part of the problem. From what we're taught here in the USA, and from the photos of the recent Anti-USA rally shown here on CD, it seems that they have a collective negative image of the USA. I certainly have peaceful intentions. All I want is the truth in a way that cannot be readily disputed. Photos can be faked, and so can various numbers and reports. I want to see it for myself. What is life like for the average citizen of the DPRK?
It saddens me that any country's people would collectively hold such a strong negative opinion of another country's people. I wish the citizens of the DPRK would realize that the average American citizen is NOT the government. I would speculate that most of us just want peaceful relations with other countries, much like China's policy of "leave us alone and we'll leave you alone".
I wish we could cooperate instead of posture against each other. I think both nations could benefit from cooperation.

I do not know the history behind the sanctions or the full extent of the sanctions. I will look into the matter so I can better understand why the relations between the two countries are so strained.

Hold that good thought and in time you may just get that chance to experience what others have in North Korea. We are working on that problem to resolve counter what others with power hope to hold onto.

querist, its people that have no true understanding of humans, is the first and foremost problem with the North Korean and so called western conflict or I should write, misunderstanding.
Every citizen in the DPRK enjoys full freedom of and right to religion. The Korean Federation of Buddhists, the Korean Federation of Christians and other religious groups are a proud part of political parties and public institutions:
During the Korean War, a huge number of temples, churches and sanctuaries in Pyongyang and the rest of the country were ruined. Thereafter, Kwangbop Temple in Pyongyang, Pyohun Temple at Mt. Kumgang, Pohyon Temple at Mt. Myohyang and other Buddhist temples were rehabilitated and new churches were built.
The ideals underlying the DPRK's foreign relations are independence, peace and friendship. The Government of the Republic strives to further strengthen friendship and solidarity with the world's people on the basis of the ideas of independence, peace and friendship and to make the international community independent and democratic and thus actively contribute to the common cause of mankind to build a free, peaceful, friendly new world, free from domination and subjugation.
On the principle of independence the Government of the Republic promotes friendship and cooperation with the various countries of the world and makes positive efforts to destroy the old international order of domination and subjugation, establish a new one, based on equality, justice and fairness and develop the South-South cooperation on the principle of collective self-reliance.
At the same time it makes every effort in unity with all the peace-loving peoples of the world to frustrate the aggression, interference and disturbance of imperialists, reduce armaments, nuclear armaments in particular, thereby meeting the desire of human beings to live in a world, free from nuclear weapons, and to safeguard peace and security in Asia and the rest of the world.
Today the Government of the Republic has established diplomatic relations with more than 140 countries. It is promoting economic and cultural exchange and cooperation with most of the countries of the world. It has up to now joined more than 210 international organizations and plays an active part.
Today the ties of friendship between Korea and many other countries of the world have become closer; the Korean people's cause of national reunification and socialist construction is gaining increasing support and encouragement.
Committees supporting Korea's reunification have been organized in many countries of the world and are active. In addition, the International Institute of the Juche Idea and organizations for the study of the Juche idea including regional institutes established in Latin America, Asia, Europe and Africa are expanding their sphere of activity. The Government of the Republic makes contributions to ensurihg the peace and security of the Korean peninsula, Asia and other parts of the world through its invariable independent stand, policies for its peaceful reunification and nuclear development for peaceful purpose.
