Malaysia's travel ban represents just the latest move undertaken by the Southeast Asian state with respect to the escalating North Korea situation.

In a statement released Thursday, the Malaysian government stated all citizens are banned from visiting North Korea until further notice, Yonhap reported.

"Also, it is the duty of all travel agents to exercise due care and to place the safety of travellers above all else", he told Bernama today.

The match was originally scheduled for March 28, and then June 8. It is not now clear whether they will be affected by this travel ban.

The statement cited North Korea's missile tests and related developments.

However, relations have been strained since February, when Kim Jong-nam, the half-brother of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, was allegedly poisoned to death at the Kuala Lumpur Airport.

North Korea attempted to mend fences with Malaysia following the incident, promising safe passage for the Malaysian national soccer team to the AFC Asian Cup UAE 2018 qualifying final round in Pyongyang.

The announcement comes after Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak said he would review diplomatic ties with North Korea, following a summit with U.S. President Donald Trump.

The AFC had referred the matter to the appropriate committee to decide on the future status of this match.

The Malaysia squad were scheduled to leave for North Korea on October 3, via Singapore and Beijing. Earlier this match twice postponed because of security reasons.

The Malaysians are bottom of Group B with one point, while North Korea are in second spot on two points, with both nations having played two games.
