India is concerned about the travel advisories some countries have issued to their citizens. The US, UK, New Zealand, Canada and Australia have asked their citizens to be cautious while travelling to India, citing threats of terrorist attacks. This has prompted the country to raise its voice against the advisory.
Sources said that Minister of External Affairs S.M. Krishna, who is in Perth for the Foreign Ministers' summit of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM), had raised the issue with his Australian counterpart, Kevin Rudd, and asked him to withdraw the advisory.
He reportedly told him that the language in the advisory was disproportionate and contrasts the boom in Indian tourism. However, the Australian Foreign Minister termed it as a "routine advice".
