Pakistan lodges protest against air space violation by Indian jets


ISLAMABAD 178034_92722945– The Foreign Ministry summoned Deputy High Commissioner of India, Gopal Baghly and recorded the protest.


Ministry of Foreign Affairs has conveyed serious concern to the Indian High Commission over the air space violation by two Indian high speed (fighter) aircraft that had intruded 4 kilometers into the Head Sulemanki area at 1040 hours. The aircraft stayed in Pakistani air space for about two minutes.


According to the spokesman of Foreign Office, Pakistan considers air space violation as a contravention of the 1991 agreement between the two countries on Prevention of Air Space Violations and for Permitting over Flights and Landings by Military Aircraft.


The Government of Pakistan calls upon India to respect all existing agreements and CBMs.
