In a clear message to Pakistan disapproving its conduct, the High Commissioner of Pakistan to India Sohail Mahmood was summoned by the Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale on Wednesday night in connection with the “telephone conversation” initiated by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan Shah Mahmood Qureshi with Mirwaiz Umar Farooq of the All Parties Hurriyat Conference.

“The Foreign Secretary conveyed the Government of India’s condemnation in the strongest terms of this latest brazen attempt by Pakistan to subvert India’s unity and to violate our sovereignty and territorial integrity, by none other than the Pakistan Foreign Minister,” an MEA statement said here.
