ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has decided not to allow Indian President Ram Nath Kovind to use its airspace for the visit to Iceland.
This was stated by Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi while talking to the state television news channel on Saturday afternoon.
The foreign minister said the decision had been taken after approval from Prime Minister Imran Khan and keeping in view the prevailing dire situation in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir, where India has unleashed a wave of oppression and tyranny.
“Pakistan has exercised utmost restraint but India is not ready to shun its intransigence and sticking to the policy of oppression in occupied Kashmir. He said India authorities have put in place an indefinite curfew in the occupied territory,” he said.
To a query, FM Qureshi said that he was visiting Geneva to attend the Human Rights Council meeting and he would apprise its members about the blatant and grave human rights situation in the occupied Kashmir.
