ISLAMABAD: Pakistan has invited the entire diplomatic corps to visit the Line of Control on Tuesday and inspect the areas hit by Indian troops last Saturday night and on Sunday.
“Invitations have been extended to heads of missions of all embassies in Islamabad to visit Jura, Shahkot and Nousehri sectors along the LoC and observe the ground situation,” Radio Pakistan quoted diplomatic sources as saying.
The sources said the Indian forces used mortars and artillery to intentionally target civilians in these sectors, which resulted in martyrdom of five civilians and one Pakistan Army solider. Some houses, shops and vehicles were also damaged. They said the Indian aggression was befittingly responded.
The sources rejected as a total lie the Indian army chief’s claim of hitting “terror launch pads.” They said the Indian chargé d’affaires had also been invited to prove the claim of his army chief before the foreign diplomats. The Indian chargé d’affaires was summoned on Sunday and Monday and a strong protest was lodged with him over the unprovoked ceasefire violations.
The diplomatic sources said India’s false claim was detrimental to regional peace and might lead to any strategic miscalculation.
The sources said Pakistan did not want war, but if war was imposed, Pakistan would fight it in the way it did on February 27. They said Pakistan was capable enough to fight war with its own resources.
According to the diplomatic sources, the situation in the Indian occupied Jammu and Kashmir had turned highly critical due to the continuous curfew. They said Indian PM Narendra Modi had taken India to a blind alley as it had become difficult for India to come out of the prevailing situation in the held territory.
