“Reconsider Travel To Pakistan Due To Terrorism”, Says US Travel Advisory

The US has asked its citizens to reconsider travel to Pakistan due to the ongoing armed conflict within or near the country. US Federal Aviation Administration issued a notice to inform about the terrorist groups actively operating in Pakistan.
In its latest travel advisory, the US State Department emphasised saying, “reconsider travel to Pakistan due to terrorism”. The advisory urged Americans not to travel to Balochistan province and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KPK) province and Pakistan-occupied Kashmir region due to terrorism and armed conflict.
The travel advisory issued by the State Department said: “Terrorist groups continue plotting possible attacks in Pakistan and may attack with little or no warning, targeting transportation hubs, markets, shopping malls, military installations, airports, universities, tourist locations, schools, hospitals, places of worship and government facilities”.
“India and Pakistan maintain a strong military presence on both sides of the border. The only official Pakistan-India border crossing point for persons who are not citizens of India or Pakistan is in the province of Punjab between Wagah, Pakistan, and Attari, India. The threat of armed conflict between India and Pakistan remains. Indian and Pakistani military forces periodically exchange fire across the Line of Control,” the advisory added.
