Earlier, Pakistan Foreign Office welcomed the ease in the latest USA travel advisory for Pakistan that acknowledged the ‘improved security situation’ in the country.
Pakistan’s Foreign Office herald the recognition of the US of the improved security situation in Pakistan as a step in the ‘right direction’. It has, however, maintained strict travel restrictions on its citizens from traveling to KP, particularly FATA, Balochistan and adjoining areas of LOC in Kashmir.
The realization of the improved security situation by the US is significant for Pakistan in the light of numerous ‘do more’ demands from the former to counter terrorism in the past. This also reflects a reinvigoration of Pak-US ties confirming the fact that despite challenges and ebb and flow in the bilateral relations, Pak and the USA are inseparable partners.
