Pakistan denies entry to Kovind's plane in its airspace
Islamabad: Pakistan on Saturday rejected a request made by New Delhi to let the airplane of Indian President Ram Nath Kovind to fly over its airspace, the media reported.
Islamabad turned down the request based on the "alarming human rights situation in Indian-occupied Kashmir (IoK)", said Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, according to Geo News.
Qureshi said Prime Minister Imran Khan had approved of the decision to reject the request and added that "the Indian aggression in IoK" was responsible for Pakistan's move. In August, it was reported that Khan was considering shutting down Pakistani airspace for India.
