Pak calls off key trade exhibition in India


Islamabad/New Delhi, Sep 24: Pakistan has cancelled a trade exhibition which was scheduled to be held next month in India, amid heightened tension between the two neighbours in the aftermath of the terror attack in Uri.

"Due to current situations between Pakistan and India which are beyond TDAP's control, the event planned for 2016 has been called off," Trade Development Authority of Pakistan (TDAP) said in a statement yesterday.

The third edition of 'Aalishaan Pakistan exhibition' was scheduled to be held in October in New Delhi. Reacting to the development, the Press Attache in Pakistan High Commission in New Delhi said,"Yes the environment here is not conducive for such an event.

We have seen in the past how right wing parties reacted to such Pakistan events. The latest move by MNS against Pak artistes is a point in case." The TDAP was already working on holding the trade show after the success of similar exhibitions held earlier in 2012 and 2014.
