New Delhi: Within minutes of Pakistan declaring the suspension of the last train service running to India, the Thar Express, Ministry of External Affairs spokesperson Raveesh Kumar told the media that, "Actions taken by Pakistan is unilateral. This has been done without consulting us. We've urged them to reconsider their decision. Our sense is that whatever is being done by Pakistan is to present an alarming picture of bilateral relationship."

Hitting out at Pakistan for its repeated acts of protest against the Article 370 issue, Kumar said, "It is time for Pakistan to accept the reality and stop interfering in internal affairs of other countries."

On being asked about the Indian High Commissioner in Pakistan, Kumar said, "He is not in Delhi. We have requested Pakistan for review of their decision. The timing of his return will be determined later."
