Pakistan denies use of airspace to Indian president

Pakistan on Saturday said it had denied India’s President Ram Nath Kovind permission to fly through its airspace — access to which is usually granted — due to New Delhi’s recent “behaviour.”

The decision comes at a time of high tension between the two nuclear-armed South Asian neighbours over the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir.

“The decision has been taken in view of India’s behaviour,” Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said in a statement.
