According to the details, the Indian high commissioner to Pakistan, Gautam Bambawale had to address a meeting organized by Karachi Chamber of Commerce and Industry, however, his speech was cancelled just at the eleventh hour.
Abdul Basit rejected the protest by expressing that the KCCI is a private entity and not a government organisation as such.
He also told that even he was not allowed to attend various meetings inside India in the past. “India should instead work things out by solving the issues that are the bone of contention between the arch rivals,” he said.
Spokesperson for Pakistani high commission told that the cancellation of meetings to which Pakistani envoy had to address was a routine in India.
He further said that all these meetings were cancelled on the pressure of the Indian government and even those meetings were cancelled in which the motive was to present the soft image of Pakistan. –NNI
