Islamabad: In a huge diplomatic embarrassment for Pakistan, the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) Summit, which was scheduled to be held in Islamabad in November later this year, the meet has now been officially postponed.

It is being speculated that the Summit has been temporarily called off after India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Bhutan withdrew their participation following the Uri attack.

India, after the deadly Uri attack where it blamed Pakistan for orchestrating the terror plan, had decided to diplomatically isolate Pakistan at the international forum, seems to now have achieved its goal.

The Ministry of External Affairs on Tuesday had confirmed that Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not take part in the SAARC summit, following which, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and Bhutan also opted out from the scheduled Summit of South Asian Countries.

The latest nation to back out from SAARC Summit was Bhutan, which had stated its position for not attending the SAARC Summit this (Wednesday) morning.
