Chief of Pakistan Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa has rejected the claims made by Indian Army chief that India carried out "surgical strikes" on Pakistan, the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) spokesperson tweeted on Thursday.
ISPR chief Major Gen Asif Ghafoor tweeted that Gen Bajwa rejected the claim of India's Army Chief General Bipin Rawat, who had said in a recent interview that the 'so-called surgical strikes' were meant to "send out a message."
"Pakistan's armed forces are fully geared to respond to any aggression by India," Ghafoor quoted Bajwa as saying.
Earlier in Balochistan, Bajwa praised the people of Balochistan for assisting the law enforcement agencies as well as the Pakistan Army in maintaining the law and order situation in the province, saying the collaborative approach has helped distribute the demands of national security put forth by China-Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC).
The Pak army chief was addressing a day-long national seminar titled, "Economic Development through new Silk Route via Khuzdar: Way forward to national integration", held in Khuzdar, Balochistan on Thursday.
