RAWALPINDI: Pakistan military spokesperson, Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (DG-ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor is addressing a press conference in Rawalpindi over national security and escalation between Pakistan and India.
Maj. Gen. Asif Ghafoor, in its opening statement, said, “This press conference aims to brief the current scenario of overall national security and recent escalation between Pakistan and India.”
“We had earlier talked about tensions between both countries on February 21 when allegations were levelled by India after Pulwama attack. We’d replied New Delhi that Pakistan has no involvement in Pulwama attack,” he said.
“[Later,] India had violated our border which was responded from the Pakistani side. Two months are spent after February but India is continuously lying [on this issue].”
“Pakistan is a responsible state which brought up the truth. Our country is consistently delivering truth and it will continue the same pattern in future as well,” he clarified.
While reminding previous attacks carried out in India, the spokesperson reminded that terror attacks on police officials took place in the past, whenever it was going through elections’ phase.
“We had facilitated local and foreign journalists to visit the area which was claimed to be attacked by India and casualties of 300 people. However, India had stepped back from its statement for this claim.”
