Pakistan downgrades diplomatic relations, suspends bilateral trade with India

Pakistan has expelled the Indian envoy on Wednesday as it downgraded diplomatic and suspended bilateral trade relations with India, according to media reports from both countries.

The move by Islamabad came after New Delhi declared on Wednesday the abrogation of the provisions of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution which gave special status to Jammu and Kashmir, after the Indian Parliament passed a resolution in this regard.

In a meeting of the National Security Committee, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday also decided to challenge India’s decision at the UN Security Council, Pakistan’s daily The Dawn reported.
