Pakistan Denies Shipment of Military aid From China

Pakistan on Tuesday denied report of any shipment of military aid from China.

"The report is totally fabricated and there is no truth in that report," Foreign Office spokesman Aziz Ahmed Khan said at a news briefing.

He was commenting on a report published on Tuesday in a section of the press about the shipment of military aid from China to Pakistan in space of only 10 days late last month.

About ways of solution of Pak-Indian tension, Khan said the International Community is certainly supportive of Pakistan's viewpoint as it has stressed the need of de-escalation, reducing tension and having dialogue to resolve all the outstanding issues with India, including the core issue of Kashmir, through peaceful means.

He expressed that hope that India would ultimately listen to the widely held opinion and withdraw its forces to peace-time locations.

About the list of "terrorists" handed over by India to Pakistan, Khan said that all the statements made by the Pakistani officials and leadership have asked India for evidence. "Without evidence we cannot proceed against (them)," he added.
