WWTC (WeChat World Travel Club) made an announcement today to suspend all member travel routes to Paris and North Korea. The official statement was issued after the terrorist attack in Paris and the Sony hacks by North Korea, which resulted in further U.S. sanctions against North Korea. Ben Klub, Managing Director of WeChat World Travel Club, explained the steps taken are necessary precautions to protect club members’ safety as all members in the US are China-born American citizens.
WeChat World Travel Club has received requests from U.S. members concerning a lack of safety measures in Paris club homes during travel. In response to the request, club managing director Ben echoed President Obama’s comment about the Paris attack: “We condemn this cowardly and evil attack. WeChat World Travel Club is built on love and trust among all Christian members who love travel, share the same belief and respect all other religions. All members are of Chinese ethnicity. WeChat World Travel Club will make every effort to verify the true identity of new members and host families to ensure travelers' absolute safety. We will resume routes to Paris and N. Korea when the situation changes.”
