Indian PM Narendra Modi would not be allowed to use Pakistan’s airspace for his forthcoming visit to Germany, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said on Wednesday. Earlier, Islamabad has denied permission to Indian President Ram Nath Kovind to use its airspace while travelling to Iceland.

Announcing the decision via a video statement, Qureshi said the Indian High Commissioner had been informed of Islamabad’s decision to not allow Modi’s aeroplane — the VIP jet Air India One — to fly over the country. Qureshi remarked that the Indian government had sought permission to use the Pakistani airspace for Modi to travel to Germany.

“India had requested Pakistan to allow Modi to use its airspace to travel to Germany on the 21st and return on 28th,” he said.

Qureshi added: “However, recognising the situation in Jammu and Kashmir and India’s behaviour, including the violence and aggression and the denial of rights in Kashmir, we have decided not to give permission to the Indian PM.

“We have conveyed this decision to the Indian High Commissioner.”

Earlier, Islamabad denies India’s request to Indian President Ram Nath Kovind to fly over the Pakistani airspace for a visit to Iceland based on the deteriorating human rights situation in Jammu and Kashmir.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan had approved of the decision to reject the request, FM Qureshi had said, citing Indian aggression in occupied Kashmir as the reason behind Pakistan’s decision. “A terrible injustice is being carried out in occupied Kashmir and the Indian government has refused to budge from their hard-line position on the issue,” the foreign minister had remarked.
