A top Pakistani official has decided to cancel his scheduled trip to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi was presented with a top honor by the Gulf country.

Pakistan Senate Chairman Sadiq Sanjrani, reiterating the country’s support for the people of Kashmir, said that a visit to the UAE would be heartache for the Pakistani nation and the Kashmiris, in a tweet on Sunday.

“Let us make it clear that Pakistan supports the Kashmiris’ struggle for independence. And now the Kashmiri Muslims are oppressive and the curfew is imposed by the central government. Therefore, a visit to the United Arab Emirates will be a heartache for the Pakistani people and Kashmiri mothers, sisters and the elderly,” the tweet read.

Modi was presented the highest civilian honor, the Order of Zayed medal, by UAE Crown Prince Mohammed bin Zayed on Saturday during a visit to Abu Dhabi.
