Pakistan dismissive of India's decision to withdraw diplomats' kids

Islamabad: Pakistan was on Monday dismissive of India's move to withdraw children of diplomats and High Commission officials from schools in the country, describing it as an 'informal, internal, administrative' arrangement.

Pakistan Foreign Office also said it was informed of the decision two months back and that 'no other considerations were communicated' to it.

Amidst growing strain in Indo-Pak ties, India has advised its diplomats and officials posted in its High Commission here to make arrangements for education of their wards outside Pakistan from this academic session, virtually downgrading it as a 'non-school-going station'.

"This is an informal, internal, administrative arrangement we were informed of two months back. No other considerations were communicated to us," Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said.

The development comes as India and Pakistan are witnessing growing bitterness after Pakistan and its Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif made provocative statements on the Kashmir situation in the wake of Burhan Wani's killing on July 8. 

Wani was a wanted terrorist Commander of the banned terrorist organisation Hizbul Mujahideen.
