Pakistan has invited the diplomats of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council (P-5) to visit the terror camps to prove that India’s claims are ‘baseless’. On Thursday, ahead of the UNGA session in New York, Pakistan offered the diplomats of P-5 countries to visit the sites where India has claimed that terror camps have been ‘reactivated’ by Islamabad. Prime Minister Modi and Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan are scheduled to address the UNGA later today in New York.
This invitation comes a day after Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat said that Pakistan has reactivated the Balakot terror camp which was destroyed in 26th February air strikes Indian Air Force carried out following the ghastly Pulwama terror attack. He also said that at least 500 terrorists are waiting to infiltrate in India from across the border.
Pakistan has called it India’s ‘propaganda’ against it. While briefing the ambassadors of P-5 countries, Pakistan’s Acting Foreign Secretary Moazzam Ahmad Khan called it an ‘anti-Pakistan propaganda’. He even asked the ambassadors to ask New Delhi to provide proofs of these terror camps.
“Pakistan is ready to provide full cooperation to delegates from P5 countries or diplomats from any other country who wish to visit any of the alleged locations to see for themselves that such Indian allegations are totally baseless and a mere rhetoric, to mislead both the international community, as well as Indian domestic audience,” Pakistan’s foreign office reportedly said in a statement.
