New Delhi India on Friday rejected the allegations made by Pakistan that it used chemical weapons by Indian security forces against Kashmiri people
The Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) issued a statement saying that the allegations are “totally unfounded.”
The MEA said, “We reject allegations made by Pakistan about the reported use of chemical weapons by Indian security forces against Kashmiri people. Such allegations aren’t new and totally unfounded.
India has repeatedly stated its opposition to using of chemical weapons by anyone, at any time, anywhere.”
The Foreign Office of Pakistan on Thursday said that India is using chemical weapons on citizens in Kashmir.
Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal said, as quoted by GeoTV, “Pakistan strongly condemns Indian aggression.” He said, “We want to resolve the Kashmir issue as per the wishes of the Kashmiri people.”
The MEA also said it is a matter of concern that Pakistan repeatedly tries to make such false allegations. India said Pakistan is repeatedly trying to make such allegations. “They are acting in a highly irresponsible manner with sole purpose of repeating untruths in vain hope that international community will start believing in their falsehood,” stated MEA.
Faisal also said a number of issues can be resolved if New Delhi does not agree to hold talks with Pakistan. India cancelled talks with Pakistan on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) after the killing of three Indian policemen
