Pakistan imposes ban on travel by diplomats
Islamabad: In view of increasing incidents of terrorism, the Pakistan Government has imposed a ban on travel of foreign diplomats inside the country without permission.
According to Interior Ministry sources, diplomats will have to seek permission from the Foreign Office before going to any part of Pakistan, reports The News.
Applications of 29 diplomats to visit Quetta were rejected by the Foreign Office because they could not provide suitable justification or reason for undertaking the visit to that city, the sources said.
The Foreign Office also turned down the request of three other diplomats to visit Gilgit-Baltistan.
The ministry has also imposed a ban on travel by diplomats posted to consulates in Karachi, Quetta, Peshawar and Lahore without prior permission.
