Decision To Bar National Team From Travelling To Pyongyang Receives Positive Reaction

KUALA LUMPUR – The decision by the government to bar the National squad from travelling to Pyongyang, North Korea for the 2019 Asia Cup Qualifying match against North Korea on March 28, received positive response from various parties.

Sports Critic and Historian Prof Emeritus Tan Sri Dr Khoo Kay Kim feels the Malaysian government made the right choice by preventing the Malaysian squad from playing the match in Pyongyang.

Kay Kim said the decision to impose a travel ban and seek to play the match at a neutral venue was based on security and safety of the players.
