DG ISPR calls HT report on COAS Bajwa’s contact with Indian counterpart ‘factually incorrect’

KARACHI: The Pakistan Army rejected the Hindustan Times report saying that Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa contacted his Indian counterpart to initiate bilateral talks between the neighbouring countries.

The ISPR director general, Major General Asif Ghafoor, called the news story, ‘factually incorrect’.

“COAS has neither approached Indian COAS nor has served with him in Congo,” the tweet said.

The Pak Army spokesperson said: “Decision for talks is prerogative of both the govts.”
