ISLAMABAD: Pakistan on Thursday termed as "baseless" the media reports about the presence of jihadi camps in Pakistan-occupied Kashmir, saying such claims are aimed at diverting world attention from Jammu and Kashmir.
Foreign Office spokesman Aisha Farooqui also said that Pakistan was committed to the holding of the SAARC Summit and will continue playing its constructive role in enhancing regional cooperation in South Asia.
Responding to a question on the media reports about presence of jihadi camps in PoK, she said, "such baseless claims have been an unfortunate ploy" aimed at diverting world attention from Jammu and Kashmir.
Farooqui also said China stood by Pakistan since the outbreak of COVID-19 and so far provided USD 4 million in cash donations, in addition to 390 ventilators, 330,000 testing kits, 830,000 N95 masks, 5.8 million surgical masks, 42,000 protective suits, and millions of other PPEs.
Notwithstanding the virus outbreak, both countries are taking relevant measures which will help timely completion of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor projects that will be a catalyst for growth and prosperity in the region, she said.
