Pak backs India on Devyani row

Pakistan on Monday sided with India on the row over the treatment meted out to senior diplomat Devyani Khobragade in the US and said such treatment should not be meted to any official of another country.

‘In the entire world, there is only one way...there is a long history to this...the respect for Vienna Convention... the Vienna Convention ought to be respected in letter and spirit by everbody,’ Pakistan High Commissioner Salman Bashir said on the sidelines of an event when asked about his reaction to the issue.

Khobragade, 39-year-old 1999 batch IFS officer, was arrested in New York on 12 December on charges of making false declarations in a visa application for her maid Sangeeta Richard and subjected to strip and cavity search.
