Pak media claim over surgical strikes concocted and baseless : MEA

New Delhi, Oct 14 (IBNS) : The External Affairs Ministry on Friday rubbished as "concocted and baseless "said the Pakistan media's story claiming India's Foreign Secretary to have admitted that surgical strikes was a "bluff"

"The News International Pakistan's story titled "Indian FS admits surgical strikes was a bluff is completely concocted and baseless," MEA spokesperson Vikas Swarup said in a statement.

The Pak media story claims that  India's foreign secretary S Jaishankar told the German ambassador in Delhi that no surgical strikes took place on terrorist camps in Pakistan-Occupied-Kashmir (POK).

Pakistan has been consistently saying that what India calls a surgical strike+ was merely routine fire along the Line of Control.

The MW statement said the German Ambassador Dr. Martin Ney  was in the group of foreign envoys briefed by the Foreign Secretary on September 29 on the surgical strikes. "They have had no further conversation since on this subject," it said.

Meanwhile, NEWS 18 quoted the  German embassy in New Delhi as saying that the Pakistani  newspaper report on a purported conversation between its ambassador and the Indian Foreign Secretary denying surgical strikes in Pakistan Occupied Kashmir is "without truth".

"The story in The News is unfounded and without truth," the acting spokesperson of the German embassy in New Delhi told News18 on Friday.
