The High Commissioner of Pakistan in India has been called to Islamabad for consultations in the midst of tension between neighboring countries over the Pulwama terrorist attack, in which more than 40 soldiers of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) They gave their lives last Thursday.

“We have called our High Commissioner in India for consultations, he left New Delhi this morning,” said the spokesman of the Pakistan Foreign Office, Mohammad Faisal, on Twitter.

The Pakistan-based terrorist group Jaish-e-Mohammed took responsibility for the attack.

On Friday, India convened the High Commissioner of Pakistan, Sohail Mahmood, and there was a very strong march or a diplomatic protest over the Pulwama terrorist attack, the sources said.

Ajay Bisaria, the High Commissioner of India for Pakistan, was called to New Delhi for consultations that same day. Government sources said that India conveyed that Pakistan must take immediate and verifiable action against the Jaish-e-Mohammad and that it must immediately stop any group or individual associated with the terrorism operating from its territories.

India also eliminated the “Most Favored Nation” status granted to Pakistan and said it will take all possible measures to ensure the isolation of Pakistan globally.

The sources told NDTV that the foreign secretary and other secretaries met with envoys from the P5 countries of the United Nations, which include China, the Gulf, Japan and European nations to inform them about Pakistan’s role in the Sponsorship of terrorism.

India had appealed to the international community to support the appointment of Jaish-e-Mohammed’s leader, Masood Azhar, as a “terrorist appointed by the UN”. The United States also asked Pakistan to “immediately end support and refuge for all terrorist groups.”
