Minister for Science and Technology Fawad Chaudhry on Tuesday announced that the federal cabinet was considering restoration of a complete ban on the use of Pakistani airspace for Indian flights.

Taking to Twitter, the minister revealed that a blanket ban on the use of Pakistani land routes for India’s trade with Afghanistan was also suggested during today’s cabinet meeting.

He said the legal formalities for these decisions to take effect were under consideration.

“Modi has started we’ll finish!” the minister wrote, in a reference to the Indian prime minister’s move to revoke occupied Kashmir’s special autonomy earlier this month.
