South Korea's for­eign min­istry said that it has de­cided to is­sue its high­est-level travel re­stric­tion to ban travel by its cit­i­zens in the northern part of Myan­mar's Rakhine state that borders Bangladesh, cit­ing high safety risks, the Korea Her­ald re­ported.

The Min­istry of For­eign Af­fairs also is­sued its sec­ond-high­est travel warn­ing, rec­om­mend­ing the evac­u­a­tion of ar­eas neigh­bour­ing China, Laos, Thai­land and In­dia in Myan­mar. It is­sued the third-high­est alert of its four-tier travel warn­ing sys­tem to call for ex­tra pre­cau­tions in the states of Kachin and some parts of Shan in the north­east­ern re­gion as well.

The min­istry said the de­ci­sion was based on the out­break of armed dis­putes in some re­gions of Myan­mar.
