US asks its citizens to reconsider travel plans to Pakistan


April 16, 2019

THE United States of America has asked its citizens to reconsider travelling to Pakistan due to terrorism.

In the latest travel advisory issued on Monday (15), US citizens have been asked to avoid travelling to restive Balochistan, Kyber Pakhtunkwa and Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).

The US state government said terrorists may attack with very little or no warning, and that they may target transportation hubs, markets, military installations, airports, universities, tourist locations, schools, hospitals, places of worship and government facilities.

“Terrorists have targeted US diplomats and diplomatic facilities in the past, and information suggests they continue to do so,” the travel advisory said.

In the PoK, the threat of armed conflict between India and Pakistan remain, the advisory said.

“Indian and Pakistani military forces periodically exchange gun and artillery fire across the Line of Control (LoC),” it said.

In February, tensions between India and Pakistan increased after a suicide car bombing killed 40 Indian security personnel. Pakistan-based militant group Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) claimed responsibility for the attack. However, Pakistan denied any involvement in the bombing.
