MOFA urges cau­tion in Tur­key fol­low­ing at­tacks

The China Post - - LOCAL -

The Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs (MOFA) said Wed­nes­day that although it main­tains a yel­low travel ad­vi­sory for Tur­key, peo­ple trav­el­ing there should pay at­ten­tion to their safety.

Un­der the min­istry’s four-tier travel ad­vi­sory sys­tem — gray, yel­low, or­ange and red, listed in or­der of sever­ity — the yel­low level serves to re­mind peo­ple to ex­er­cise cau­tion and re­view whether to travel to that des­ti­na­tion.

The min­istry noted that two at­tacks took place in Is­tan­bul on Aug. 10. Those who were re­spon­si­ble for at­tacks on U.S. Con­sulate — the Rev­o­lu­tion­ary Peo­ple’s Lib­er­a­tion Party/Front — at­tacked U.S. Em­bassy in Ankara in 2013.

A po­lice sta­tion in Is­tan­bul was also at­tacked by a ve­hi­cle laden with ex­plo­sives, killing a po­lice of­fi­cer.
