Will devise system to deal with it: Hardeep Puri on Pak considering closing airspace for India

NEW DELHI: With Pakistan considering shutting down its airspace for India, Aviation Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said here on Thursday that India was subjected to “that experience” recently and will put in place systems to deal with any challenge.

He, however, said he does not want to anticipate developments in this regard.

Puri’s comments came after Pakistan Foreign Office’s Spokesperson Mohammad Faisal told media in Islamabad earlier in the day that they could order the closure of the country’s airspace for India “at a time of its choosing”. He, however, added that no decision was taken so far.

Puri said in New Delhi, “Every country will take its own measures…We were subjected to that experience recently and we will put in place systems and measures designed to deal with the issues and challenges.” (AGENCIES)
