Pakistan Suspends Lahore-Delhi Dosti Bus in The Wake of Kashmir Tensions

After cutting off railway routes with India, Pakistan has suspended Pak-India Dosti Bus service owing to escalating tensions over Kashmir conflict.

The decision is in line with the decisions of the National Security Committee (NSC) that came on Friday. The bus service ran between Lahore and New Delhi.

Federal Minister for Postal Services and Communications Murad Saeed announced the news on Twitter.

Earlier, Minister for Railways Sheikh Rasheed announced the closure of Samjhota and Thar Express, connecting the neighboring countries via railway.

NSC has made other similar decisions as well such as suspending trade ties, transit trade via Wagah and Atari borders and downgrading cultural and diplomatic ties.

Moreover, Pakistan has also decided to take up the matter with the United Nations. Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi is currently in China asking for their assistance.
