Pakistan imposes 'reciprocal' travel restrictions on U.S. diplomats

US diplomats in Pakistan to face restrictions

The measures include travel restrictions, as well as treating USA diplomatic cargo at Pakistani airports and ports in accordance with Vienna Convention's Article 27 "which does not provide for an exemption from scanning". In addition, restrictions will be also applied on the family members of diplomats.

"In case travel permission regime for Pakistani diplomats/officials is implemented by the State Department, Pakistan would be obliged to take reciprocal actions with effect from 11 May 2018", said the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a detailed announcement.

"Our diplomats are under restrictions and they can travel farther [than the capital Islamabad], but they have to notify the government of Pakistan".

Pakistan on Friday announced that U.S. diplomats serving in the country would no longer be allowed special privileges that provided them exceptional security cover.

United States diplomats in Pakistan are already prohibited from visiting high-security areas, such as the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (Fata), to protect them against possible terrorist attacks.
