The diplomatic relationship between India and Pakistan seems to have taken a turn for the worse after reports of Indian diplomats based in Islamabad facing harassment began to surface.

Furthermore, guests visiting diplomats are also being questioned allegedly by Pakistan’s secret service agents. Reportedly, the surveillance of the diplomats has also increased. On December 10, an intruder tried to enter the house of an Indian diplomat in Islamabad.

According to reports, India has taken up this matter with Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

In March 2018, India and Pakistan mutually agreed to follow 1961 bilateral code of conduct for the treatment of diplomatic/consular personnel in India and Pakistan. However, such behaviour by Pakistan is a clear contravention of the Vienna Convention.
