Pak concerned over FICCI report mentioning surgical strikes
Islamabad: Pakistan on Thursday expressed concern over a report by an Indian business lobby group that considers options like launching surgical strikes on the country, saying
such views would not help foster peace in the region.
Responding to a question on the report titled "National
Security and Terrorism" prepared by the Federation of Indian
Chambers of Commerce and Industry, Foreign Office spokesman Abdul Basit said: "We regard such views as unhelpful to the cause of peace in South Asia".
"It is indeed unfortunate that FICCI has allowed itself
to be carried away in the tide of opportunistic propaganda,"
Pakistan has "noted with deep concern" that the report
"focuses on options including launching surgical strikes
against Pakistan, stoppage of imports and restricting travel
between the two countries," Basit said.
The report by FICCI considered the use "hard options"
against Pakistan including conducting "surgical" strikes
