The Indian External Ministry is now caught in the double whammy diplomatic challenges. The first blow came from Nepal in the form of its “New Map”. The second is now being reported from Pakistan where two Indian High Commission staffs go missing since the morning of June 15.
However, government sources have confirmed that the two Indian High Commission staffers are in the custody of the Pakistani Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI). The Ministry of External Affairs has summoned the Pakistan envoy, according to news agency ANI.
The incidence is being looked at as a retaliation of New Delhi’s espionage allegations over two Pakistani officials. A week ago, two Pakistani officials at the Pakistani High Commission in New Delhi were deported on the charges of espionage. Both of them worked in the visa section in Delhi and were allegedly caught spying.
It seems China has decided to put open all its diplomatic attacks on India. With the spread of Coronavirus from China, the call to boycott China has been gaining traction worldwide, including India. With a Communist government in Nepal, China currently enjoys better control of the Himalayan nation than ever before. Pakistan has already announced China as its all-weather ally.
