Washington, April 07 (H.S.). Due to the political turmoil in Pakistan, there has also been a danger of increasing terrorist incidents there. In such a situation, America has asked its citizens not to travel to Pakistan. It is also being seen as a continuous tarnishing of the image of Pakistan at the international level.
The ongoing tussle in Pakistan over the chair of outgoing Prime Minister Imran Khan is awaiting the Supreme Court’s decision. In the midst of this wait, Imran himself has even advised the youth to agitate. In such a situation, America sees the possibility of terrorism and communal violence there. The US State Department, in its recently issued travel advisory, has asked American citizens not to travel to Pakistan and to reconsider.
The US has placed Pakistan at the third level in terms of travel. The US in a travel advisory has asked its citizens not to travel to Pakistan due to the potential for terrorism and kidnapping. It has also been advised not to travel especially to Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa provinces. At the same time, America has also expressed the possibility of terrorism and armed conflict. In this view, citizens have been suggested not to travel to the areas adjacent to the Line of Control.
It is noteworthy that Imran Khan has been calling the no-confidence motion against him a foreign conspiracy and his point was towards America. Now the American directives seem to be proving the sourness in the relationship between the two countries.
