ISLAMABAD, (MANEND NEWS): Pakistan has categorically rejected the
baseless Indian allegations that Islamabad wanted to infiltrate so-
called “terrorists” via the Line of Control (LoC).
Foreign Office spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri, in response to
reports in the Indian media quoting “an unnamed” Indian security
official making baseless allegations against Pakistan, said India’s
smear campaign against Pakistan is well-known and was fully exposed
by the EU DisinfoLab’s report.
He said India has erected multi-tiered fence, installed electronic
surveillance equipment and set up multiple layers of security, making
it impossible for anything to cross the LoC to enter IIOJK. Therefore,
such allegations recycled from time to time have no basis to stand on.
Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said on its part, India has been involved in
state-terrorism in IIOJK and against Pakistan. From Samjhota Express
killings of February 2007 to the terrorist blast in Lahore in June 2021,
terror incidents targeting Pakistanis have had an Indian hand.
Meanwhile Pakistan has welcomed the recent revision of the US travel
advisory for Pakistan, which has upgraded Pakistan to Level-3 and
termed it as step in the right direction.
In response to media queries about recent revision, Foreign Office
Spokesperson Zahid Hafeez Chaudhri said this is an acknowledgement
of the improvement of security environment in Pakistan and the
effective handling of Covid-19 pandemic by the government.
He said Pakistan will continue to work with the US Government on this
issue to ensure further rationalization and improvement of travel
advisory on Pakistan.
