New Delhi: In an apparent fallout of the Uri militant attack in which 18 army soldiers were killed, India, Afghanistan and Bangladesh have decided not to attend the upcoming SAARC Summit that will be held in Pakistan in November.
The move is seen as a strategy by India to isolate Pakistan internationally for being the hub of terrorism.
India, Afghanistan and Bangladesh will be producing evidences supporting their claim that Pakistan is sponsoring terrorism.
Quoting sources, India Today TV reported that India, Bangladesh and Afghanistan will boycott the SAARC Summit to be held in Pakistan on November 9 and 10. Sources also told the channel that the three countries are planning to hold the victims of State Sponsor of Terror Conference soon.
The Bangladesh High Commissioner to India, however, said there has been no final decision on whether his country will boycott the summit or not.
“As of now, the SAARC summit is going to be held sometime in Nov. No final decision has been taken by our PM regarding her participation,” Muazzem was quoted as saying by ANI.
