Indian High Commissioner snubbed in Pakistan, event cancelled at last minute
Indian High Commission to Pakistan Gautam Bambawale was to address business community at Karachi today.
New Delhi: Following his statement calling on Islamabad to focus on their own problems and asserting that Kashmir is an integral part of India, the Karachi Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday cancelled the Indian High Commission to Pakistan Gautam Bambawale's event at the last minute.
Bambawale was to address business community at Karachi today.
Earlier today, in his keynote address at the Karachi Council on Foreign Relations, Bambawale responded to a question about the Kashmir unrest and said that both India and Pakistan have issues which need to be resolved.
On the discussions between the two countries, Bambawale said that despite high tensions, there had been contacts at the operational level, adding that the Indian government had been saying, "Let's work together to get to the bottom of terrorism which was a headache not only for Pakistan but for India and the world."
Bambawale also stated that it was India's desire to see a Pakistan which was moderate, prosperous and stable, and at peace with itself, its neighbours and the rest of the world.
