Pakistan blames India for exclusion from ‘SAARC Satellite’ project


The Indian Express reports:

Pakistan on day blamed India for its exclusion from the ‘SAARC Satellite’ project, saying New Delhi was not willing to develop the venture on a collaborative basis. Pakistan’s claim came on a day when India successfully launched the ‘South Asia Satellite’ to provide communications and disaster support to neighbouring countries.

“During the 18th SAARC Summit, India offered to ‘gift’ a satellite to SAARC member states, to be named as the so-called ‘SAARC Satellite’. Subsequently, however, India made it clear that it would build, launch and operate the satellite solely,” Pakistan Foreign Office Spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said.
