In view of the terror attack in Pulwama, Jammu and Kashmir, news channel WION has withdrawn its invitation to all the speakers from Pakistan who were to participate in the Global Summit: South Asia Edition that is scheduled to take place in Dubai on February 20.


“We believe this heinous attack has vitiated the atmosphere and any deliberation on collective prosperity with Pakistan is untenable,” noted a communique, adding: “Among those who will not be joining us now is Mr Fawad Chaudhry, Minister of Information and Broadcasting in the Govt of Pakistan, whose statements on the Pulwama attack we unequivocally condemn.”


General Pervez Musharraf, former President and Army Chief of Pakistan, Mr Abdul Basit, former High Commissioner of Pakistan to India and Mr Salman Bashir, former Foreign Secretary of Pakistan will also not be part of the Summit now, the release added


However, other sessions of the Global Summit will be held as scheduled, the communique added.
