Amid tension and threats of boycott, Pakistan Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi would be skipping the inaugural session of the 46th Council of Ministers' Meet of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperaton (OIC) since the 'Guest of Honour' is India, but has decided to attend the rest of the conference, India Today TV has learnt through reliable sources.

Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi on Wednesday expressed reservations at Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) after the latter extended an invitation to Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj to be the guest of honour. He also exerted pressure at OIC to withdraw the invitation to Sushma Swaraj.

Sushma Swaraj has been invited as a "guest of honour" at the inaugural session of the foreign ministers' conclave in Abu Dhabi next month.

Speaking on Geo News show, Aaj Shahzaib Khanzada Kay Sath, Mehmood Qureshi said, "I have spoken to the United Arab Emirates foreign minister and have expressed my reservations over her invitation. I have made myself clear that India has shown aggression."

"Under the current circumstances, it will not be possible for me to attend OIC meeting where Sushma Swaraj is present," Qureshi said.
