Pakistan Thursday summoned a senior Indian diplomat in Islamabad to protest against recent alleged airspace violations by Indian warplanes, a foreign ministry spokesman said.
The violations, denied by India, occurred at a time when relations between the two nuclear-armed rivals have been severely strained by last month’s attacks on Mumbai by militants from Pakistan.
The Indian fighter jets crossed into Pakistani airspace over Kashmir and over Punjab province, the government said last Saturday.

Pakistan said its own fighter jets were scrambled to chase off the intruders, but it also played down the incident by describing the violations as “technical” and “inadvertent.”
India’s deputy high commissioner, Manpreet Vohra, was given a written protest against the intrusions, saying they contravened a 1991 agreement aimed at preventing such incidents, the foreign ministry spokesman said.
