Pakistan denies Modi to use their air space

As the tensions between the two nations regarding the abrogation of Article 370 and 35(A) were on high, there comes a strong “No” signal to Indian PM Modi from the Pakistan government.

Wondering what and why? Let me explain, the Indian Prime Minister was scheduled to leave the US on the early Saturday and onto this, the Indian government requested Pakistan to allow PM Modi’s flight to use their air space, but Pak rejected the request of PM Modi to fly in their Air space.

A video was released by a Pakistan foreign ministry in which Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi has told, “Keeping in view the situation in occupied Kashmir … we have decided that we will not allow the Indian Prime Minister”.

Usually, our Indian west-bound flights use the Pakistani air space as currently, the two nations are amid high tensions, Modi’s government made a special request for which they got a big rejection. Upon the revoking special privileges of Jammu and Kashmir, Pak closed its air space for Indian flights and even earlier Pakistan has denied permission for President Ram Nath Kovind’s aircraft for his Europe visit.
