Pakistan warns India; Aggression will not go unpunished; Rejects claim of surgical strikes

Overseas Pakistanis see politics of agitation as threat to economic gains

ISLAMABAD, Sep 29 (APP): Pakistan Thursday rubbished Indian claim of a “surgical strike” into Pakistan, saying
such “falsified, concocted and irresponsible” statements can
only escalate the fragile security situation in the region.

“We can assure India that any such aggression will not
go unanswered or unpunished,” the Foreign Office said in a
hard-hitting statement.

Pakistan blamed India of “deliberately escalating  tension” at the LoC to divert attention from the continued  deteriorating situation in the Indian Occupied Jammu and  Kashmir and horrendous Indian brutalities.

“It [India] is trying to make fool of its own people
and the international community,” the Foreign Office said.

Pakistan also strongly condemned the unprovoked
ceasefire violations at the Line of Control (LoC) and
termed it “continuation of a pattern” of violations by
Indian forces.

“The valiant Armed Forces of Pakistan have given  and will continue to give a befitting response to any  aggression,” the Foreign Office said in a statement.

There has been a steadily growing war of words and heightened tension along the LoC between the two countries,  following the attack at a military base in the Indian  Occupied Kashmir.

Rejecting baseless Indian claim of carrying out surgical
strikes into Pakistan, the Foreign Office regretted that India
has chosen to share this falsified claim with the Indian media.
“Such falsified, concocted and irresponsible statements can
only escalate the already fragile security situation in the region, especially in the wake of the Indian brutalities and war crimes in the Indian Occupied Jammu and Kashmir,” the Foreign Office said.

“Pakistan is ready to defend its people and territory from
any Indian aggression or Indian State sponsored terrorism on  Pakistani soil,” the statement said.
