On Tuesday, Director-General Inter-Services Public Relations Major-General Asif Ghafoor said in an interview with Hamid Mir, Pakistan has challenged the Indian government to take diplomats and journalists to Indian-occupied Kashmir.
Hamid Mir had accompanied Asif Ghafoor on a tour of the LoC. Several diplomats and journalists had been invited to take a tour of the Line of Control (LoC) by the army in order to establish the ground reality about the presence of alleged terror camps in the area.
Earlier, The Indian Army Chief General Bipin Rawat had claimed that three terror camps were destroyed in retaliatory action by its army opposite the Tangdhar and Keran sectors in Jammu and Kashmir.
But according to Mir, who toured the site on Tuesday morning, there appeared to be no training camps in the area, except only scattered village populations.
“Today diplomats and journalists visited the Line of Control and ascertained the ground reality with regards to claims by Indian army chief about presence of alleged terror camps in the area,” DG ISPR said.
“The whole of Pakistan has challenged the Indian government to take diplomats and journalists to their side of the Line of Control in Indian-occupied Kashmir in a similar manner,” he added.
He further said “I request the international community to travel to occupied Kashmir and tell the world the reality about the situation there. India can take the diplomats and journalists of its choosing from Pakistan.”
“Pakistan is prepared to take these diplomats and journalists wherever India wants to take them. Journalists and diplomats have seen the ground reality with their own eyes here today,” he maintained.
