India calls Pakistan's decision to expel Indian envoy 'an act of desperation'

Updated 07 Aug 2019 10:30 PM

The diplomatic community in India has termed Pakistan's decision to expel the Indian ambassador from Islamabad as an "act of desperation".
On Wednesday, Pakistan expelled Ajay Bisaria, the Indian ambassador to the country, from Islamabad. Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi also announced that their Indian counterpart in New Delhi will be called back.
Though Pakistan does not have a high-commissioner to India at present, the announcement means that diplomat Moin-ul-Haq who was slated to take over the position will no longer take up the post. The move is a fall-out of India's recent decision to withdraw special category status to J&K.
