Pakistan again refuses to allow PM Modi’s aircraft to pass through its airspace.

Prime Minister Modi is going to Saudi Arabia on Monday, where he will address an international trade summit and talk to the leadership of the Gulf country and Pakistan on Sunday said that it has rejected India’s request to let Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s special aircraft pass through its airspace.┬áHe cited the alleged violation of human rights in Jammu and Kashmir behind his move.

According to ‘Radio Pakistan’, Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said in a statement that it has been decided that Prime Minister Modi’s aircraft will not be allowed to use Pakistan’s airspace.

Qureshi said that this decision has been taken in view of the alleged violation of human rights and ‘black day’ in Jammu and Kashmir. Pakistan is celebrating ‘Black Day’ on Sunday in support of Kashmiris. Qureshi said that the Indian High Commission is being informed in writing about this decision.

Last month, Pakistan refused to allow Prime Minister Modi’s aircraft to pass through its airspace. At that time Modi was going for a meeting of the United Nations General Assembly.

Pakistan last month also refused to allow President Ram Nath Kovind’s aircraft to use its airspace. Kovind went on a tour of Iceland.
