Afghanistan Asks Pakistan to Re-Open Airspace to Flights to India

KABUL – Afghan government has asked Pakistan to allow flights from Afghanistan to pass its airspace to India.
Islamabad closed its airspace last month after India carried out air raid, following a suicide bombing in Indian-Administrated Kashmir.
The closure has doubled flying time to New Delhi, which is currently happening through Iran, increasing fuel costs for airlines and fares for passengers as well.
Kabul’s call for assuming of airspace came by Foreign Minister Salahuddin Rabbani in meeting with Pakistan Ambassador to Kabul Zahid Nasrullah Khan.
Afghan Forgein Minister also discussed peace process, consultative Loya Jirga and Qatar talks with Pakistan Ambassador to Kabul, Zahid Nasrullah.
