Pakistan lodges protest with India over violation of airspace



Pakistan on Thursday summoned Indian High Commissioner to the Foreign Office and lodged a protest over the violation of airspace and unabated ceasefire violations, local media sources reported.

A statement issued by the Foreign Office said the foreign secretary lodged a ‘strong protest’ over air space violation near Bhimber yesterday as an Indian ‘spy drone’ intruded into Pakistani territory.

“An Indian UAV (spy drone) entered Pakistan’s air space in violation of the international law, Pakistan’s territorial integrity and the two agreements of 1991 on air space violation, and SOPs of advance notice for military exercises, military maneuvers and troops movement,” the statement said.
