(a) to (d) Government has, from time to time, taken up the incidents of harassment, aggressive surveillance and intimidation of the officials of the Indian High Commission in Islamabad with the Government of Pakistan. The Pakistan side has been asked to ensure the safety and security of our diplomatic Mission and its officials.

The implementation of this understanding is regularly followed up through diplomatic channels.
