Pakistan has denied Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s request to use its airspace to show solidarity with Kashmir.
The decision was taken to respect the ‘black day’ being observing on Sunday against Indian atrocities in Indian-Administered Kashmir, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said.
The Foreign Office conveyed the message to the Indian High Commission and said its relations with India are dependent on how India treats Kashmiris.
PM Modi is scheduled to visit Saudi Arabia to meet King Salman Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud in Riyadh on October 29.
Last month, Pakistan had rejected the Indian prime minister’s request to fly over its airspace to go to Germany. It kept the human rights violations in Kashmir and India’s attitude over Kashmir in mind and turned down India’s request.
