New Delhi has requested Pakistan to use its airspace for Modi’s flight to US on September 20, diplomatic sources said.

The authorities considering to hold a high level session to discuss the Indian request, sources said.

Pakistan had refused a request made by New Dehli earlier, to use its airspace for the plane of Indian President Ram Nath Kovind, owing to New Dehli’s consistent human rights violation in occupied Kashmir.
