The Acting Foreign Secretary, Moazzam Ahmad Khan briefed resident Ambassadors of the P-5 Missions in Islamabad today about the recent, intensified anti-Pakistan propaganda emanating from India.
Referring to the intensified, concerted Indian campaign against Pakistan, especially in the last few days, he stressed upon the aggressive, belligerent statements emanating from India, especially the Indian military, including, baseless, unsubstantiated allegations of “terrorist camps.” Senior Indian military commanders have been giving provocative statements about presence of so called “terrorists planning to infiltrate India” and activation of “terrorist camps” in Mansehra, Rawalakot and Muzaffarabad in AJK. Similar venomous rhetoric against Pakistan continues on Indian media.
These Indian statements signify their desperate attempts to divert attention of the International community from the humanitarian nightmare in IoJ&K where Indian atrocities, including curfew and communications blockade continue for more than 50 days. Indian statements only vitiate an already tense environment and are a threat to regional peace and stability. Pakistan does not wish confrontation but will give a befitting response in case of any misadventure or false flag activity.
Pakistan strongly rejects these baseless, unfounded allegations which are being used to build the ground to preemptively justify any Indian misadventure/ false flag operation by Indian armed forces along the LOC or elsewhere.
We call upon the P5 countries to ask India to corroborate its fallacious claims about the presence of these so – called “terrorist camps.” Pakistan is ready to provide full cooperation to delegates from P5 countries or diplomats from any other country who wish to visit any of the alleged locations to see for themselves that such Indian allegations are totally baseless and a mere rhetoric, to mislead both the international community, as well as Indian domestic audience.
