Indian envoy’s comments on Sharif-Ghani talks against diplomatic norms, says FO


ISLAMABAD: The Foreign Office said on Thursday that comments by the Indian envoy in Afghanistan on the meeting between Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif and Afghan President Ashraf Ghani in Paris breached diplomatic norms.

“It is against the diplomatic norms for an ambassador to try to undermine relations of his host country with a third country. We expect all regional countries to support efforts for peace and reconciliation in Afghanistan,” Foreign Office spokesman Qazi Khalilullah said at the weekly media briefing.
