The US, Australia, Canada, France, Netherlands and Britain have issued travel advisories to its citizens in view of terror threats in India, asking them to exercise caution in visiting certain parts of the country.

Replying to a question in Lok Sabha, External Affairs Minister SM Krishna said such travel advisories are issued by
the concerned countries on the basis of threat perception to their nationals in India.

He said these advisories are reviewed periodically and are withdrawn based on such perception.

"The Government of India constantly interacts with the governments of other countries through diplomatic channels and
bilateral contacts to convey our views and perceptions," he said.

Krishna said Indian diplomatic missions also regularly disseminate information to decision makers of these countries
to project the correct picture about the security situation in India.
