Dr. Muhammad Faisal, the spokesperson of Pakistan's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) said Pakistan High Commissioner to India Sohail Mahmood would be visiting Islamabad shortly for consultations on matters relating to Pakistan-India relations.

India too has alleged that several Indian mission staffers in Islamabad have been severely 'harassed and intimidated'.
