akistani Prime Minister Imran Khan will be using the Indian air space to travel to Sri Lanka.
Pakistan had requested for use of air space, for which India granted permission. As a protocol, whenever heads of state or governments pass through the air space of any other country, the country is alerted and due permission is taken.
Khan is scheduled to embark on a two-day official visit to Sri Lanka from today. He will be accompanied by Cabinet colleagues, including Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi and a high-level business delegation.
It is worth to mention here that in the aftermath of India removing special status for the erstwhile state of Jammu and Kashmir, Pakistan had denied permission for overflight for President Kovind’s plane one time, and PM Modi’s plane two times.
