In the wake of India’s move to repeal Article 370 and bifurcate Jammu and Kashmir into two union territories, Pakistan had called in a National Security Council meeting to discuss the future course of action. The NSC meeting arrived at the decision of severing trade between the two countries, downgrading bilateral diplomatic ties with India and raising the issue of Kashmir in the United Nations Security Council among other things.

A statement issued by the Pakistan government said that the NSC meeting discussed the “situation arising out of unilateral & illegal actions by Indian govt, the situation inside Indian Occupied J&K and along LOC”.

Besides, Pakistan NSA has also decided to close the Wagah border and suspend Bus services to India.
