ISPR DG rejects HT report on COAS’s contact with Indian counterpart for talks

Karachi (Staff Report): The Pakistan Army rejected the Hindustan Times’ report, claiming that Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa contacted his Indian counterpart to initiate bilateral talks between the neighbouring countries.


The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Director General Major General Asif Ghafoor, called the news story, ‘factually incorrect’.

“COAS has neither approached Indian COAS nor has served with him in Congo,” Ghafoor said in a tweet. He said: “Decision for talks is prerogative of both the govts.”
