New Delhi: India on Saturday rejected claims by the United Nations that the UN mission monitoring the ceasefire “has not directly observed” any firing along the Line of Control (LoC).

Responding to a question on surgical strikes carried out by India along the LoC, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon’s spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said at a daily press briefing that the UN Military Observer Group in India and Pakistan (UNMOGIP) had not “directly observed” any firing.

 

Dismissing these remarks, India’s Permanent Representative to the UN Syed Akbaruddin said facts do not change whether somebody ‘observed’ them or not.

“Facts are facts, we presented the facts and that’s where we stand,” he said.

India on Thursday carried out surgical strikes on eight terror launchpads across the LoC, killing 38 terrorists preparing to infiltrate from PoK.
