Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (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.
What good Indian High Commission is which can’t stand with its Army Chief? Indian High Commission staff didn’t have the moral courage to accompany fellow diplomats in Pakistan to LOC. However, a group of foreign diplomats & media is on the way to LOC to see the truth on ground.
