ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Chairman Senate Sadiq Sanjrani strongly reacts over UAE government awarding Indian PM Narendra Modi with highest civilian award.
Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani cancelled an official visit of his parliamentary delegation to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was honoured on his recent tour to the Gulf nation amid the crisis in occupied Kashmir.
Sanjrani was scheduled to visit the UAE from August 25 to August 28 on the invitation of the UAE government. His delegation was to hold meetings with the UAE parliamentarians and government officials.
The Senate chairman, however, decided to cancel the trip as Pakistan vehemently supports Kashmiri peoples’ right to freedom from Indian occupation and condemns India’s atrocities in the occupied valley, a statement from the Senate Secretariat said.
