US lifts travel restrictions on movement of Pakistani officials
Days after successful visit of Prime Minister Imran Khan to the US, Washington on Wednesday lifted restrictions on the movement of Pakistani diplomats and officials in the United States (US).

Sources said that the Pakistani diplomatic staff had to take permission at least five days ahead from the US authorities if they needed to travel outside of the imposed 25 miles radius.

Now, the Pakistani diplomats could travel in the US without any hurdle, said the sources. The US had imposed travel restrictions on Pakistani diplomats, officials and their family members last year on May 11.

Earlier on May 11, soon after following the implementation of U.S restrictions on Pakistani diplomats, the Foreign Ministry had announced ‘reciprocal’ travel restrictions on U.S. diplomats.
