Islamabad (Staff Report): Pakistani Foreign Office on Thursday rejected Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s claim regarding ‘surgical strikes’ across the Line of Control (LoC), terming it false and baseless.
During a weekly briefing, FO spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said Pakistan had openly condemned the claims of surgical strikes . He said the whole world knew who the terrorists are and who their head is, adding that India was supporting terrorism in Pakistan and spy Kulbhushan Jadhav’s arrest was a proof of who had been carrying out terrorist activities.
However, the Pakistan military had swiftly rubbished the notions of a surgical strike, saying: "This quest by the Indian establishment to create media hype by rebranding cross-border fire as a surgical strike is fabrication of the truth. Pakistan has made it clear that if there is a surgical strike on Pakistani soil, the same will be strongly responded."
