New Delhi: In another development of India's diplomatic tussle against Pakistan post Uri attacks, the meeting to review Pakistan's Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status and related logistics has been postponed for next week.

According to reports, the meeting was to be chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi and other senior ministers to discuss the pros and cons of revoking MFN status to Pakistan. 

Speaking on the issue, other senior minister in the opposition have said that it is a sensitive matter and government must be cautious while taking any decision.

The Most Favoured Nation clause was signed in 1996 which, however, has not been reciprocated by Pakistan. MFN means that the country which has been granted the status will receive equal trade advantages.

Earlier, Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Monday (September 26) critically censured the Pakistan government and said that Pakistan must abandon its dream of obtaining territory it covets.
