Yet another step by Indian government to fuel tensions with Pakistan
LAHORE - The Indian government takes yet another step to fuel tension with Pakistan as Delhi denied visas to six Pakistani chefs.
Pakistani Chefs were scheduled to participate in the World Heritage Cuisine and Food Festival scheduled to be held in Amritsar next month.
The decision came amid rising tensions between the two countries after India canceled an earlier announced meeting between Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and his Indian counterpart Sushma Swaraj.
The festival will take place from October 12-14. Chefs from over 40 different countries will take part in the event.
