“By passing the torch relay through Indian-administered Kashmir… India has committed a travesty that the international community cannot accept under any circumstances,” Pakistan’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

“The matter would also be raised with the International Chess Federation and condemned the “mischievous attempt to mix politics with sports”, it added.

A gala opening ceremony of the 44th FIDE Chess Olympiad was held at the Nehru Indoor Stadium in Chennai on July 28, 2022.
