Foreign Ministry issues travel warning for Iraq


The Czech Foreign Ministry has issued a travel warning for Iraq, advising citizens to put off all non-essential trips in view of the heightened risk of terrorist attacks. A statement published on the ministry’s web page says that the operations of Islamic state militants are creating a highly volatile and dangerous situation in the north and north-west of the country as well as the previously relatively safe area of Iraqi Kurdistan. Citizens who decide to make the journey despite the risks are advised to register with the ministry’s travel data base DROZD.
