ISLAMABAD: Islamabad on Thursday termed Indian media reports on the presence of Chinese troops on the Pakistani side of Jammu and Kashmir as “baseless”.
Commenting on recent events and debates in New Delhi on the contentious Kashmir issue, Foreign Office spokesperson Nafees Zakaria said, “now the Indian intelligentsia and scholars are also questioning the Indian government over its position on Kashmir”.
“The Kashmir issue is still mentioned in the UN Security Council resolutions list as an unsettled matter,” Zakaria remarked, while addressing a weekly press briefing in the federal capital.
According to earlier media reports the Indian Army noticed the presence of senior People’s Liberation Army officials at the forward posts opposite Nowgam sector in North Kashmir after which some intercepts of Pakistani army officers suggested that the Chinese troops have come to create some infrastructure along the LoC.
