India on Wednesday conveyed its condolences to Pakistan over the plane crash near Islamabad that killed all 155 people on board.
In a message to his Pakistani counterpart Shah Mahmood Qureshi, external affairs minister S.M. Krishna “conveyed deep condolences on behalf of the people and government of India to the people and government of Pakistan, especially to the bereaved families”, the external affairs ministry said in a statement. All 155 people on board were confirmed dead when an aircraft of a private airline crashed on Wednesday morning amid heavy rain in the wooded Margalla Hills skirting the Pakistani capital.
The Airblue flight 202, flying from Karachi to Islamabad, suddenly lost contact with the airport here and crashed near the popular Damanekoh resort in the Margalla Hills at about 9.45 a.m. This is the first time Krishna has written to Qureshi after the July 15 talks the two held in Islamabad which stalled over conflicting perceptions on terror and Jammu and Kashmir.
Recently, Qureshi sent a condolence message to Krishna over the train accident in West Bengal that killed over 60 people.
