Islamabad: India has not offered any bulletproof car to Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for the upcoming South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (Saarc) summit, to be held in Nepal Nov 26-27, according to a Pakistani official.

According to a media report Nov 17, a Nepalese official had said that Sharif rejected the use of a bulletproof car provided by India for the Saarc summit in Kathmandu.

"No car was offered by India to Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif so there was no question of turning down the offer," Dawn online reported citing foreign office spokeswoman Tasneem Aslam Thursday.

"Prime Minister Sharif will attend the summit," Aslam told reporters.

The Saarc summit will see the leaders of Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, the Maldives, Sri Lanka, Nepal, India and Pakistan meet in Kathmandu Nov 26-27.
