Ready To Host SAARC Summit: Pakistan

Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi says his country is ready to host the SAARC summit and India can attend virtually if its leaders do not want to fly to Islamabad. Pakistan was to have hosted the summit in 2016 but India pulled out after the Uri terrorist attack. SAARC operates on consensus and one country not attending means the entire summit is off.
