ISLAMABAD, Pakistan: Pakistan army took the foreign diplomats to Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK) on Tuesday morning, enabling them to themselves witness the false claims made by the Indian army about alleged ‘terror launch pads’ inside Pakistani Territory stand falsified, reports DND News Aency.
The Director General Inter Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor and the Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal accompanied the visiting diplomats.
The diplomats included the Iranian Ambassador to Pakistan Mehdi Honardoust, the Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Yu Jing, and the Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina to Pakistan Sakib Foric among others.
They visited Nauseri, Shahkot and Jura Sectors near the Line of Control (LoC) to see the damage caused by the Indian unprovoked firing last Saturday night and Sunday.
The foreign diplomats were shown the pieces of the shells fired by the Indian artillery.
Last Sunday, the Indian Army Chief Bipin Rawat claimed that their army had launched attacks on terror camps located inside Pakistan-administered Kashmir region, in which three camps were destroyed and six to 10 soldiers of the Pakistan army were killed.

However, the director general ISPR refuted the Indian army chief’s claims, and also said that they would take foreign diplomats & media on those given locations to let them have the firsthand information by themselves.
Therefore, today’s visit was also aimed at to prove the Indian army’s false claims wrong, and allowing the foreign diplomats to see themselves that no such terror camps existed there.
“Claims” by Indian Army Chief remain just that: “claims”
