Recalling Pakistani envoy ‘routine’ process, says Indian foreign ministry

Pakistan, earlier in the day, had said that it is calling back Mahmood for consultations after recurring alleged incidents of harassment of its diplomatic staff in New Delhi.

Spokesman of Indian foreign ministry, Raveesh Kumar while playing down the issue also alleged that they are also receiving similar reports about Indian diplomats in Islamabad but they are taking the issue through diplomatic channels. We would like our mission to function normally without any obstruction or harassment in keeping with the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations, 1961, added Kumar.

India and Pakistan have been arch nemesis to each other since the two got separated in 1947. New Delhi accuses Islamabad of training and arming militants and helping them infiltrate across the Line of Control (LoC), a de facto border dividing the disputed region of Kashmir, as a proxy to mount attacks on Indian soil. Pakistan denies those allegations. The nuclear-armed neighbours have fought two of their three wars since 1947.
