New Delhi has moved toward the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) after Islamabad banded Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi to use Pakistan’s flight exclusion zone, Indian news website NDTV reported on Monday.
Officials, who spoke to the Indian media on the condition of secrecy, say that overflight permissions should be settled by other countries under the rules set by International Civil Aviation Organisation.
“Overflight permissions are required, and decided by other countries as per agreed ICAO rules and India will continue to seek such overflight permissions. Distinctly, we have taken up the matter of such rejection with the pertinent international civil aviation body,” Indian officials said.
Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi had proclaimed on Sunday that Pakistan had repudiated Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s request to use Pakistan’s airspace.
According to a statement delivered by the Foreign Office, Shah Mahmood said that the judgment has been taken to show unity on the black day being marked by Pakistan in light of the recent human rights defilements being done by the Indian forces in Indian occupied Kashmir.
