Canada warned its citizens to Pakistan travel over security threats

The government of Canada has warned its Canadian citizens to travel to Pakistan over terrorism and security threats. It comes after a threatening and unpredictable security situation in Pakistan.

In this regard, the Canadian government has issued travel advice for its nationals planning to visit Pakistan. The sources claim that Canada warned to protect its Canadian citizens who want to travel to Pakistan.

The Canadian High Commission in Pakistan advised its nationals to travel with extra care and to avoid making needless trips. It also warned them to stay away from Pakistan’s border regions because of the country’s unstable security conditions.

In addition, the High Commission directed them to stay away from places within 50 kilometers of the Afghan border, 10 kilometers from the borders of China, India, and Iran, and to avoid making needless trips to Karachi owing to the threat of terrorism and violence.

The Commission has also advised its residents to take precautions against potential threats. Such as staying away from protest sites and regions with big crowds, being alert to their surroundings in public settings, and always carrying picture identification.

Moreover, Canadian citizens are advised to stay ready to change their travel schedules at a moment’s notice, pay attention to local media to stay informed of any changes to the situation, and consider any orders given by local authorities.

It is crucial to keep in mind that this new warning resonates with a significant rise in terror-related occurrences across Pakistan, particularly in Balochistan and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.

The recent attacks include a militant strike in Pakistan’s northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province which killed 23 troops. It occurred in Daraban near tribal districts bordering Afghanistan on Dec 12, 2023.

Besides this, the year 2023 remained gloomy for Balochistan in terms of terrorist attacks. The militant attacks have taken 330 lives including 149 security personnel and 467 injured people.
