New Delhi on Thursday urged Islamabad to review its decision of downgrading diplomatic ties a day after Pakistan responded to India’s unilateral and illegal move of changing occupied Kashmir’s autonomous status.
A statement by the Indian Foreign Ministry said that it ‘regretted the steps taken by Pakistan and would want Islamabad to review them in order to preserve normal channels for diplomatic communications.
“The intention behind these measures is obviously to present an alarming picture to the world of our bilateral ties. The reasons cited by Pakistan are not supported by facts on the ground” read the statement.
“The recent developments pertaining to Article 370 are entirely the internal affair of India. The Constitution of India was, is and will always be a sovereign matter. Seeking to interfere in that jurisdiction by invoking an alarmist vision of the region will never succeed” said the statement.

The decision was taken at the meeting of National Security Committee (NSC) in Islamabad, with Prime Minister Imran Khan in the chair, said a statement issued by the PM Office.
Here are the top decisions that were taken in NSC Meeting:
