New Delhi. Guests were aggressively turned away by Pakistani security officials from an Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad on Saturday. Even calls were made to stop many of them from attending it, sources said.
Indian envoy Ajay Bisaria told reporters on Sunday that “such intimidating tactics are “counter-productive” for bilateral relations.
“We apologise to guests who were aggressively turned away from our Iftar party last evening. Such hostile tactics are deeply disappointing.
“They not only violate basic norms of diplomatic conduct and civilized behavior, but are also counter-productive for our bilateral relations,” he said.
