National Conference leader and former Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah while reacting to the row over Indian High Commissioner’s Iftar party in Islamabad urging both the countries to “stop this nonsense”.

Omar’s response came after sources said that guests were “aggressively turned away” by Pakistani security officials from an Iftar party hosted by the Indian High Commission in Islamabad on Saturday and even calls were made to stop many of them from attending it.

Criticising the Pakistani side for their “tit for tat diplomacy”, Omaar tweeted, “Stupid tit for tat diplomacy. It was stupid when we did it outside the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi & it’s stupid when it’s done outside our’s in Islamabad. Now that it’s 1-1 perhaps it’s time to move on & stop this nonsense.”

Indian envoy Ajay Bisaria said on Sunday that “such intimidatory tactics” are “counter-productive” for bilateral relations.

“We apologise to all our guests who were aggressively turned away from our Iftar party last evening. Such intimidatory tactics are deeply disappointing. They not only violate basic norms of diplomatic conduct and civilised behaviour, but are also counter-productive for our bilateral relations,” he said.
