Pak boycotts Jaishankar’s SAARC speech at UNGA

New York, Sep 27 (IANS) High drama was witnessed at the SAARC Foreign Ministers meet on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly as Pakistan boycotted the meeting while Indian External Affairs Minister S. Jaishankar gave his address.

Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi kept away from the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation Foreign Ministers meeting as Jaishankar was giving his address, and once the Indian minister finished and left, the Pakistan minister made his entry.

Pakistan’s action comes even as it has been continually accusing India of hampering South Asian integration and SAARC.
