Due to Coronavirus, all countries are trying to prove their involvement in the war by removing their estrangement, whereas Pakistan does not want to be part of any such war started by India. This is the reason why Pak did not participate in the virtual conference to be held between trade officials of SAARC member countries. By boycotting this forum, Pakistan has once again made it clear that the talks with India that PM Imran Khan had done till now were only hollow words.
Pakistan has made excuses for the boycott of this trade meeting by Pakistan, which is also very poor. The second stop was the video conferencing of SAARC countries convened at the initiative of India on 15 March. This meeting was attended by the heads of all countries except the President of Pakistan. On behalf of Pakistan, this meeting was attended by Pakistan PM’s Health Affairs Advisor and Minister of State Zafar Mirza. Let us tell you that in this meeting, PM Modi had also talked about creating a fund to prevent this epidemic in SAARC countries and to contribute first in it. Apart from this, PM was also said that the doctors of India will be ready to go to any country and India will provide all the information gained on this subject to the member countries. On the contrary, Zafar Mirza tried his best to deviate from the meeting by chanting Kashmir.
India wants to present itself to the world in such a way that it alone is making all efforts to stop this epidemic. This is the reason why Pakistan has boycotted it. However, According to the information the pak has admitted that it has moved may increase tensions between the two countries. A full statement has been issued by the Foreign Ministry of Pakistan regarding the boycott of this meeting. It states that Pakistan is a founding member of SAARC and is an important forum.
