India Requests Pakistan to Reopen its Airspace

India has requested Pakistan that Indian PM Narendra Modi be allowed to fly through its airspace to attend the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation meeting in Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek, on June 13 and 14.

If granted, the case will be an exception to the restrictions Pakistan had imposed on flights.

In February this year, Pakistan closed down its airspace for all those flights that have passed through the Indian airspace. The action was taken after escalating tensions between the two countries.
