New Delhi: Two officials of the New Delhi High Commissioner ’s Office in New Delhi were ordered to leave the country within 24 hours after announcing “unwelcome figures”.
The Foreign Office has strongly condemned India s move to expel Pakistani diplomats from India, calling it “undesirable”.
Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui strongly condemned the move, saying it was part of Indian media ’s anti-Pakistan propaganda.
She said Pakistani officials in New Delhi were kidnapped for torture, were tortured, exerted pressure and threatened to accept the charges. After the Pakistan High Commission intervened, these officials were subsequently released.
The statement said that India ’s actions were reprehensible and violated the Vienna Convention and diplomatic etiquette. The Pakistan High Commission did everything in accordance with international law and diplomatic courtesy.
Aisha Farooqui said that India ’s move was to curb the diplomatic activities of the Pakistan High Commission. These steps cannot divert people ’s attention to internal and external issues or cover up violations in the occupied Kashmir.
