New Delhi: Indian External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj on Thursday finally admitted that no Pakistani soldier or citizen was killed in the Indian airstrike in Balakot.
Swaraj, who was addressing women party workers said, When we carried out air strike across the border after the Pulwama terror attack, we had told the international community that we took that step in self-defence only. We had told the international community that the armed forces were instructed not to harm any Pakistani citizen or its soldier during the strike.
Shortly after the Indian FM statement, Director General (DG) Inter-Service Public Relations (ISPR) Major Gen Asif Ghafoor took to Twitter and said that Indian foreign minister spoke up the truth at last.
Finally the truth under ground reality compulsions. Hopefully, so will be about other false Indian claims ie surgical strike 2016, denial of shooting down of 2 IAF jets by PAF and claim about F16. Better late than never.#TruthPrevails#PakistanZindabad https://t.co/Kim8CZTdlJ
