Pakistan allows Modi’s flight to Bishkek through its airspace

Posted on

Pakistan on Monday decided in principle to let Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s aircraft fly over its airspace to Bishkek where he has to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit on June 13-14.

Pakistan had fully closed its airspace on Feb 26 after an Indian Air Force incursion near Balakot.

The Hindu said India requested Pakistan to let Modi’s aircraft fly over its airspace to Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan for a meeting of the Shanghai club.

An unnamed official confirmed to Press Trust of India that Islamabad had approved in principle the Indian government’s request to let Modi’s aircraft fly over Pakistan airspace to Bishkek.

The foreign ministry of India had said that there will be no bilateral meeting between India and Pakistan at the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO).
