Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohamad Faisal

Foreign Office again rejects Indian allegations about Pulwama attack

HEADLINE ISLAMABAD

ISLAMABAD – Pakistan has reminded India that bluster, belligerence and pursuit of expedient standards to suit internal political interests is both delusional and counterproductive.

Responding to media queries on absurd claims made by spokesperson of the Indian Ministry of External Affairs about Foreign Secretary’s briefing to the diplomatic corps, the Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr. Mohammad Faisal said India must come out of the denial mode, end state repression against Kashmiri youth, address widespread alienation in Occupied Kashmir and pursue the path of dialogue.

He said Pakistan had rejected Indian allegations because these were made within a short time from the attack and without carrying out any investigations. These knee-jerk and pre-conceived accusations were nevertheless consistent with well-rehearsed tactics from Indian playbook after such incidents in the past.

The Foreign Office spokesperson said Jaish-e-Mohammed remains a proscribed entity in Pakistan since 2002 and the country is implementing its obligations on sanctions implementation.
