Refusing to support India’s decision to pull out from the scheduled 19th SAARC Summit followed by Bhutan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan – Nepal, the present Chair of SAARC, has strongly urged the member countries to ensure the summit was on time.

Nepal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement late Wednesday September 28,  calling all member states to create a conducive environment for the summit scheduled to take place in Islamabad.

Pakistan said on Thursday September 29 that it will still hold the meet in November as scheduled.

According to the SAARC charter, even if one head of government skips the event, it gets automatically postponed or cancelled.
