Dayadra Mandal,Kolkata;

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will not go to Kyrgyzstan via Pakistan on Thursday morning to participate in the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) meeting. The meeting is being organized in Bishkek, capital of Kyrgyzstan on 13-14 June. Foreign Ministry spokesman Ravi Kumar said on Wednesday: "To go to Bishkek of VVIP aircraft, the Indian government had considered two alternate routes.

It has now been decided that VVIP aircraft will fly for Osh, Iran and Central Asian countries to Bishkek. Although a Pakistani official had said on Monday that the Imran government has been theoretically ready to allow the Indian prime minister to fly the aircraft from its airspace. In such a way, the decision of the Indian government has surprised many people because the request of the Pakistan government from India for the permission of the Prime Minister Modi's flight was requested.

On February 26, after the air strikes at the camps of Jaish-e-Mohammad in Balakot, Pakistan had closed its airspace for India. Even now, he has opened only two of the 11 ways. It may be recalled that the Government of India took this decision at a time when Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan and Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi issued separate letters to their respective Indian counterparts wrote. In this, he expressed his desire to start bilateral talks. On 26th May, Imran Khan called on Modi and expressed his desire to work together for the betterment of the people of both countries.

Prime Minister Modi says that it is extremely important to build trust and violence and terrorism free environment for peace and prosperity in the region.Modi, for the first time, is taking part in the eight-member SCO meeting for the first time, while Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan will be attending the meeting for the first time. However there would be no bilateral talks between the two leaders. While a bilateral meeting is proposed with other leaders including Prime Minister Modi's Chinese President Xi Chunfing and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
