Pakistan rejects Indian PM Narendra Modi’s request
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan Government rejects Indian PM Narendra Modi’s government request to give airspace permission for overseas flight.
The government on Wednesday announced its decision not to grant India's request for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to use Pakistani airspace for his flight to Germany.
Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said that the decision has been made "keeping in view the situation in occupied Kashmir".
"A request was received from India that Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi wishes to go to Germany and seeks to use the airspace for an overflight on the 20th and wishes to use the same for a return flight on the 28th," said the foreign minister in a video statement.
