Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi, in a video interview, said that India had made a request that Prime Minister Modi’s aircraft be allowed overflight on September 20 while flying towards Germany on way to the US, and on its return journey on September 28.
“But keeping in mind Kashmir and India’s attitude and its human rights violations, we have decided against granting overflight. And the decision has been conveyed to the Indian High Commission,” he said.
Last week, Pakistan had similarly refused permission for President Ram Nath Kovind’s aircraft for overflight through Pakistani airspace.
