Pakistan High Commissioner to New Delhi Abdul Basit denied India’s claims of conducting surgical strikes across the border.
In an interview to a TV channel, Abdul Basit reiterated his earlier stance and said that when there were no strikes conducted by India in Azad Kashmir, then there is no point of commenting on it. “India itself has not yet claimed any strike across the LoC on diplomatic level,” Basit said.
Basit further said that if there had been any surgical strikes earlier, then the Pakistani forces would have definitely given a befitting reply.
He told the TV channel that Pakistani forces would certainly have responded to it, ‘befittingly and immediately’.
He added that even Modi government has not yet provided any evidence pertaining to Uri attack.
However, government had said that there are enough evidence that supports terrorists were from Pakistan. On September 29, India claimed to have conducted surgical strikes in Azad Kashmir, saying that several terrorists were killed in the military action conducted inside Pakistani territory. The claims were denied by Pakistan and Congress and AAP demanded proof for the same.
