FO denies report about expulsion of Pakistani diplomat from India


ISLAMABAD: The spokesperson of Pakistan Foreign Ministry Qazi Khalilullah said that Indian media reports about expulsion of Mr. Idrees, an official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, from India are factually incorrect.


The press release issued by FO stated that a few months ago, Mr. Idrees was designated for appointment in the High Commission of Pakistan, New Delhi.

However, due to inordinate delay in issuance of visa to him, he is being assigned to another Pakistan Mission abroad.

In response to another question, the Spokesperson said that Pakistan is fully capable of defending its territorial integrity against any foreign Aggression.
