No final decision yet on complete closure of Pakistani airspace to India, says Foreign Minister Qureshi
No final decision has been taken yet on the complete closure of Pakistani airspace to India, said Pakistan's Foreign Minister, Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Gulf News reported.
He said the matter would be decided after consultation, according to Pakistani news channel Dunya Tv.
Earlier on Wednesday, the Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) closed three aviation routes in the Karachi airspace from August 28 to 31, according to a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM). However, the CAA did not give reasons behind the partial closure.
The decision comes a day after Federal Science and Technology Minister Fawad Chaudhry said the prime minister was considering a “complete closure” of airspace to India.
