Pakistan’s High Commissioner to New Delhi Abdul Basit in a interview with India Today dismissed Indian case of a ‘surgical strike’ over the Line of Control (LoC) on Wednesday.
“To the extent the administration of Pakistan is worried, there was no surgical strike at all, else they would have reacted instantly,” he said.
At the point when ‘video proof’ of the strike was raised amid the meeting, Basit rubbished the claim. “There can’t be any video… Since the surgical strike did not happen.”
“No surgical strike over the LoC was led oblivious hours of Sept 29,” he said.
Reacting to a question about examination concerning the Uri assault, Basit said, “We might want to escape this habitual pettiness, so why not get a worldwide examination concerning this episode?”
“You didn’t leave any space for participation. When you begin pointing the finger at Pakistan and naming us as a fear based oppressor state, you are shutting every one of the entryways for collaboration,” the high official said.
“On the off chance that India trusts Pakistan has done it then the most ideal route forward would be to have a worldwide test.”
The high official included that when both sides begin an exchange procedure, determination of issues can be taken forward.
“When we’re not conversing with each other, then this collaboration is impractical,” Basit said, including that Pakistan’s examination concerning the Pathankot air base assault was continuous.
The high official named delay of the Saarc summit an “aggregate misfortune” for all nations included. “We are certain that Pakistan will have the nineteenth summit ─ if not this year, then at some point one year from now,” he said.
At the point when addressed about Balochistan, the Basit said, “The general population of Balochistan are as enthusiastic as individuals in different parts of Pakistan yet we do have stresses on the grounds that there is a bigger question of a remote motivation of destabilizing Pakistan,” he said.
“You would review that not long ago we captured a man called Kulbhushan Jadhav, and that authenticated what Pakistan has been stating from the beginning. So to that degree, we are concerned… A few strengths are attempting to undermine Pakistan,” he included.
