NEW DELHI: India has allowed Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s aircraft to use Indian Air Space.
Khan is scheduled to embark on a two-day official visit to Sri Lanka from today (Feb 23).
In 2019, Pakistan had denied opening its airspace for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flights to the US and Saudi Arabia citing alleged human rights violations in Kashmir.
Pakistan PM Imran Khan will hold deep talks with Sri Lankan leaders on various issues such as trade, defence, and technology during his one-day visit to the island nation.
Sri Lanka recently cancelled Khan’s scheduled speech in its Parliament, reportedly to avoid confrontation with India.
After 40 CRPF personnel were killed by a Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammed suicide bomber in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama, relations between the two countries turned bitter.
