TIMEFRAME expected from 1/9/2019, 12:00 AM until 1/9/2019, 11:59 PM (UTC). COUNTRY/REGION Afghanistan


On Tuesday, January 8, Taliban militants called off peace talks with US officials in Qatar, which were expected to start on Wednesday, January 9, due to various disagreements on key issues, including the participation of Afghan officials in the peace talks, a possible ceasefire, and prisoner exchange prospects.


Afghanistan is entering its 18th year of conflict, grappling with a radical Taliban insurgency that is gradually extending its hold across the country, with increased attacks, including suicide bombing attacks, targeting the Afghan security forces.


Individuals in Afghanistan, particularly in Kabul, are advised to remain vigilant for militant activity and adhere to instructions and advice issued by their home government. The security environment in Afghanistan remains complex. Although travel is possible in some areas, other areas should be considered strictly off limits. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
