The United States has revised its travel guidelines for Pakistan and upgraded the country from the ‘Do Not Travel’ list to ‘Reconsider Travel’ mode.
There are four levels of travel advisory in the United States, which include Normal Practical Precautions, Use Heavy Exercise Precautions, Reconsider to Travel, and Don’t Travel.
However, according to a statement from the US State Department, Washington urged its citizens to reconsider their trip to Pakistan due to terrorism and sectarian violence.
“Terrorist groups continue to plan attacks against Pakistan,” the press release said. “Terrorists can attack without warning or without warning and strike at transport hubs, markets, shopping centers, military installations, airports, universities, tourist destinations, schools, hospitals, places of worship and government offices. Terrorists attack US diplomats and diplomatic institutions in past.”
The announcement contains a warning: “Do not approach the Indian-Pakistani border. Armed groups are known to operate in the area. India and Pakistan maintain a strong military presence on both sides of the border. “
The statement acknowledged that the security situation in Pakistan has improved since 2014, with more resources and security infrastructure emerging in major cities, especially Islamabad.
