Pakistan today on Thursday dismissed the news of presence of Chinese soldiers along the Line of Control (LOC) after the Indian media hyped the presence of Chinese troops in the region.
While speaking to media in response to the question about India’s external ministry from Pakistan’s defense ministry, Foreign office spokesperson of Pakistan, Tehmina Janjua told that it was the most absurd piece of information she had heard till now and called it baseless.
Along with Pakistan, China too dismissed the claim of presence of its troops in POK region. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson told media that the reports were ridiculous and baseless.
Earlier, Lt Gen K. T. Parnaik, India’s Northern Army Commander had reported that the presence of Chinese forces in Gilgit-Baltistan and northern areas were increasing steadily which led to many people showing concern if there was hostility between India and Pakistan, what would the reason of presence of Chinese.
He also further told that as per China’s ‘strings of pearls’ policy, Chinese footprints are too close for comfort. Moreover, In New Delhi Defense Ministry has been asked on this report from the Ministry of External Affairs.
This is not the first time that Chinese personnel have been spotted in POK region. Earlier, last year, Chinese official told that some of its personnel were present in the region to provide flood relief assistance.
This time again Chinese government said that it is helping in some development process going on in the POK region.Share
