Foreign Secretary of India Vijay Gokhale on Tuesday failed to answer reporters’ questions after reading out a prepared statement to media confirming that Indian aircraft intruded into Pakistani airspace earlier today.
In his statement, the foreign secretary claimed that the air raid was launched on a militant camp across the Line of Control.
Pakistan, however, has rejected India’s claims, with military spokesman Major General Asif Ghafoor stating that Indian military aircraft violated the Line of Control as they intruded from the Muzaffarabad sector but were forced to return owing to the timely response of the Pakistan Air Force.
