The Foreign Ministry has conveyed serious concern to the Indian High Commission over the air space violation by two Indian high speed (fighter) aircraft that had intruded 4 kilometres into the Head Sulemanki area at 1040 hours this morning. The aircraft stayed in Pakistani air space for about two minutes.

Pakistan considers today’s air space violation as a contravention of the “1991 Agreement between Pakistan and India on Prevention of Air Space Violations and for Permitting over Flights and Landings by Military Aircraft”.

While voicing its concerns with the Government of India, the Government of Pakistan calls upon it to respect all existing agreements and CBMs that have been reached between the two countries.
