According to agencies, India has permitted Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan’s aircraft to use Indian airspace.
On February 23, Imran Khan will be traveling to Sri Lanka on his maiden visit.
In 2019, Pakistan had denied opening its airspace for Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s flights to the US and Saudi Arabia citing alleged human rights violations in Kashmir.
India took up the denial of permission to VVIP flight with an International Civil Aviation Organisation.
Under normal circumstances, VVIP aircrafts are granted permission by countries. However, Pakistan’s denial of permission to VVIP aircraft was an aberration.
