Beijing, August 13
India on Thursday slammed Pakistani Ambassador to China Moin-ul-Haque for his “lies and half-truths” on Jammu and Kashmir, and mentioned terrorists “recruited, trained and armed” by Islamabad have disturbed peace and order within the Union Territory which is an integral a part of India.
“India’s concerted efforts to bring peace, stability and progress to J&K stand in stark contrast to Pakistan’s strategy, which is little more than a blatant and rapacious campaign of cross-border terrorism aimed at debilitating the region,” the Embassy of India right here mentioned.
The Embassy made these remarks in response to an article titled ‘Urgent actions on Jammu, Kashmir needed’ printed in China’s state-run Global Times on August 7.
In a press release, the Embassy mentioned Ambassador Haque has chosen to repeat Pakistan’s “lies and half-truths vis-a-vis the Union Territory of Jammu and Kashmir, which is an integral part of India and whose affairs are internal affairs of India, where Pakistan, or any other country, has no locus standi.” Ambassador Haque’s misrepresentations, whereas not shocking, can’t conceal the numerous progress that J&Okay has made within the 12 months following the abrogation of Article 370 of the Indian Constitution, the assertion mentioned, detailing the developmental actions initiated by the federal government within the final one 12 months.
Haque may contemplate holding up a mirror to his personal “regime” and mirror on Pakistan’s personal actions within the area earlier than making ludicrous characterisations of the Indian authorities’s actions, it added.
“Terrorists recruited, trained and armed by Pakistan have disturbed peace and order in J&K, with over 450 incidents of terrorist orchestrated violence taking place since August 2019, leading to several civilian casualties. And it is in fact Pakistan that has repeatedly effected administrative and demographic changes in territories that it has occupied illegally and forcibly in J&K and Ladakh,” it mentioned.
Pakistan’s unprovoked ceasefire violations, numbering shut to three,000 within the first seven months of 2020 alone, present help for terrorist infiltration alongside the Line of Control (LOC), the assertion added.
The Global Times has declined to hold the Indian Embassy’s response, the mission mentioned.
“The Global Times @globaltimesnews declined to carry the Indian Embassy’s response to this interview,” the Embassy tweeted on Thursday.
The Embassy additionally connected to the tweet its detailed response which Global Times, a part of the ruling Communist Party of China’s (CPC) publications, has declined to hold. — PTI
