New Delhi: Terming the operation as fictional, Pakistan high commissioner to India Abdul Basit on Wednesday said that Indian army did not conduct any surgical strike in the Pakistan occupied Kashmir (PoK).
In an interview to a news channel on Wednesday, Basit said Pakistan would have ‘immediately retaliated’ if Indian Army had conducted surgical strikes in PoK.
“Had there been any surgical strike, Pakistan would have retaliated immediately…we did not need any reaction time. It seems to me the term surgical strike is being used very loosely in India… no Indian soldiers crossed the LoC… there was only cross-border firing,” he said.
Basit also said by blaming Pakistan or calling it a terrorist state (after the terror attack on the Indian Army’s Uri camp), India is closing all doors for cooperation.
India had on September 29 conducted surgical strike across the Line of control (LoC) against terror launch pads. The operation resulted in significant casualties to the terrorists.
