Pakistan on Thursday warned that there was a real possibility of India staging another “false flag operation” to complicate the current situation, in a statement issued just a day before the government is set to unveil a new National Security policy that seeks peace with immediate neighbours.

“There is a real possibility that India might stage another False Flag Operation to complicate the current situation. So we continue to alert our friends in the international community about this prospect,” Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar told a weekly news briefing here.

His statement came after the Indian army chief, in his annual press conference, claimed the presence of so-called “launch pads” and “training camps” across the Line of Control (LoC). Asim Iftikhar categorically rejected the Indian army chief’s “fallacious comments” made at a press conference.

“There is nothing new about the Indian General’s unfounded allegations, as these are a part of the malicious anti-Pakistan propaganda being peddled by the BJP-RSS [Bharatiya Janata Party-Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh] combine at the helm in India,” he told reporters.

“The Indian government is driven by its belligerent and expansionist agenda embedded in the delusional notion of “Akhand Bharat”, which poses a grave threat to regional peace,” Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar added.
