October 22, 2019

The diplomatic corps visited the Jura sector along the line of control today to see the damage caused by the Indian unprovoked firing last Saturday night and Sunday.

The foreign diplomats and the media were shown the pieces of the shells fired by the Indian artillery. Indian forces are targeting the civilian population on the line of control with heavy artillery.

The diplomats and the media themselves reviewed the Indian violations.

The ambassadors and high commissioners of different countries also visited Jura market and interacted with the locals there.

DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor briefed the diplomatic corps and the media about the Indian violations. He said the Indian forces are targeting innocent civilians on the line of control. He said the baseless claims of the Indian Army Chief stand exposed.

Meanwhile, in a tweet, DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said the Indian high commission staff did not have the moral courage to accompany fellow diplomats in Pakistan to LoC. He said what good Indian high commission is which cannot stand with its Army Chief?

Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal in a tweet said the Indian side has not joined us in the visit to LoC . He said they have neither provided coordinates of the alleged “launchpads”.

In a statement, the Foreign Office Spokesperson said the foreign diplomats observed the factual position on the ground.

He said the Indian lies have been exposed.

The Spokesperson said the diplomats were appreciative of the gesture of the visit.
