India has refused visas to Pakistani journalists seeking to cover the ‘Kartarpur corridor’ meeting between Islamabad and New Delhi on Thursday.
Foreign Office spokesperson Muhammad Faisal said that Islamabad had allowed more than 30 Indian journalists to cover the Kartarpur ground breaking ceremony in Pakistan last year. Despite this, India has now rejected to issue visas to Pakistani journalists for the upcoming meeting that will be held on March 14. Faisal has called India’s judgment “regrettable” a tweet.
The Indian journalists issued visas for the coverage of the event last year were hosted by the Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi and also met the Prime Minister Imran Khan.
