Pakistan has denied a request by India to let Prime Minister Narendra Modi use its airspace, the Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Sunday.
According to the statement, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said the decision had been taken to show solidarity on the 'black day' being marked by Pakistan.
Islamabad would inform the Indian High Commissioner of the decision through a written statement, he added.
Earlier in September, Pakistan refused to let Modi use its airspace for his travel to the USA. Pakistan also didn't allow the Indian President use its airspace for travel to Iceland, media reports stated.
