Pakistan to downgrade diplomatic ties, suspend bilateral trade with India: NSC

The National Security Committee (NSC) on Wednesday decided to downgrade Pakistan’s diplomatic relations and suspend bilateral trade with India.

The top security body’s meeting presided over by Prime Minister Imran Khan was held to review the situation in the wake of India’s shock decision to scrap the special status for occupied Kashmir.

The meeting also decided to review Pakistan-India bilateral arrangements, take the matter to the United Nations and observe the upcoming Independence Day on August 14 in solidarity with Kashmiris.

“PM directed that all diplomatic channels be activated to expose brutal Indian racist regime, design and human rights violations,” a statement issued after the meeting said.
