ISLAMABAD, MAR 11 (DNA) — Pakistan will invite the representatives of the permanent member (P-5) countries of the United Nations Security Council on India’s recent violation of Pakistani airspace, Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi said on Friday. 

In a statement, the foreign minister said the Indian charge d’affaires had been summoned to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on the second time violation of the same kind. FM Qureshi said the act had endangered the human lives as the aircraft of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the domestic flights of Pakistan could be hit by the missile.

He said India would have to be answerable to its aggression, adding that Pakistan would always be ready to counter it. He mentioned that the ruling party in India was promoting Hindutva policies, adding that 21 members of the EU parliament had written a letter to the Speaker of Lok Sabha on the deteriorating human rights situation.

The foreign minister said Pakistan had exposed the double standard of India before the world. He said Pakistan was in favour of maintaining good relations with all neighbours including India, however, would not compromise on its sovereignty. =DNA
