India and three stooges Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Bhutan, chicken out of SAARC Summit
Following India’s instructions, three more client states, Bangladesh, Afghanistan, and Bhutan have also announced that they will not be attending the summit.
However, as always the reports were nothing but continuation of series of baseless rumors that is aimed at creating havoc and panic.
Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz has strongly denied reports that three Asian countries will boycott upcoming Saarc summit in Pakistan adding that India is making propaganda to foil the conference.
Some Indian newspapers ran reports that Bangladesh, Afghanistan and Bhutan have also decided to pull out of the upcoming meet which Pakistan Foreign Office strongly denied and did not confirm the development.
“Such rumours about Saarc conference could be propaganda by RAW,” Sartaj Aziz said.
“Regional cooperation and terror don’t go together. India pulls out of SAARC summit in Islamabad,” said the official spokesperson for the India's Ministry for External Affairs (MEA) Vikas Swarup in a tweet on Tuesday.

“The Indian government has informed the current SAARC chair Nepal that increasing cross-border terrorist attacks in the region and growing interference in the internal affairs of member states by one country have created an environment that is not conducive to the successful holding of the 19th SAARC summit in Islamabad in November 2016,” said the statement released from the Indian foreign ministry.
The announcement came amid growing tensions between the two nuclear-armed neighbors following the attack on an Indian army base in held Kashmir.
