Brisbane: During Prime Minister Narendra Modi's visit to Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in Brisbane, Australia, on Friday, the Indian map displayed it had Kashmir missing from it, which prompted a strong protest by foreign secretary Sujatha Singh. 

 

 

 

"India's foreign secretary raised the issue strongly and received an unqualified apology," external affairs ministry spokesperson Syed Akbaruddin said, responding to a question whether the issue was raised after it was noticed that Kashmir was missing from the Indian map displayed by the organizers.

"Yes, immediately lodged strong protest and received an unqualified regret from the organisers," Akbaruddin tweeted.
