Pakistan on Tuesday took foreign diplomats to the Line of Control (LoC) as part of efforts to debunk India’s claims of targeting alleged “terror launch pads” in Azad Jammu and Kashmir (AJK).
India’s top diplomat was not part of the group, refusing Islamabad’s rare invite and lending further credence to Pakistan’s doubts over the veracity of New Delhi’s claims.
The diplomats and accompanying media personnel were given a tour of the affected areas and were shown remnants of the shells fired by Indian forces.
The visit was organised by Pakistan in the wake of Sunday’s deadly exchange at the LoC sparked by India’s ceasefire violations.
Nine Indian soldiers were killed, while one Pakistani soldier and five civilians were martyred as the two sides exchanged heavy fire in Jura, Shahkot and Nousheri sectors.
