Pakistan had accepted India’s request to let Minister for External Affairs Sushma Swaraj’s flight go over its airspace, according to The Hindu news. The publication cited officials in Delhi and Islamabad as saying that Sushma Swaraj’s flight was permitted to go over Pakistani airspace as the Indian minister was due to attend Shanghai Cooperation Organisation session in Bishkek. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said that the Indian government had made the request to avoid longer route.

Sushma Swaraj attended the SCO meeting of foreign ministers in Krgyzstan on May 21 and 22, along with Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi. On the sidelines of the SCO meeting, Qureshi also had an informal meeting with his Indian counterpart Swaraj. Speaking after the informal meeting, Qureshi said he cleared it to Swaraj that Pakistan wanted resolution of all issues [with India] through consultation.
