Prime Miniter Narendra Modi left for the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) summit in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan on Thursday morning.

A day after Pakistan opened its air-space for PM Narendra Modi's aircraft to travel to Kyrgyzstan for the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit,  the Prime Minister will not be using the Pakistani airspace for his journey.

Ministry of External Affairs sources has told that the government of India explored two options for the route of PM Modi's VVIP aircraft to Kyrgyzstan's capital Bishkek. The MEA has decided to take the VVIP aircraft through the route of Oman, Iran and Central Asian countries on the way to Bishkek for the summit. 

PM Modi's aircraft was initially scheduled to fly through the Pakistan airspace for Kyrgyzstan. However, the Government of India has decided to change the route of his journey.

In a major development, Pakistan has opened its air-space ahead of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Summit as per the request of the Indian side for Prime Minister Narendra Modi to travel to Kyrgyzstan, as per sources. 

Pakistan had fully closed its airspace on February 26 after an Indian Air Force (IAF) strike on a Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM) terror camp in Balakot. Since then, it has only opened two routes, both of them pass through southern Pakistan, of the total 11. India requested Pakistan to let Prime Minister Modi's aircraft fly over its airspace to Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan.

The decision also came over a week after Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan and foreign minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi wrote separate letters to their Indian counterparts, pushing for restarting bilateral talks.

Tensions between the two countries worsened after the Pulwama terror attack and both the countries were almost on the brink of war after India's military planes struck a terrorist training camp in Pakistan's Balakot on February 26 and Pakistan carried out a counter-offensive the next day.

Pakistan PM Imran Khan will also be attending the summit, however, PM Modi and Pakistan PM Imran Khan are not slated to meet at Bishkek.
