India rejects Pakistan minister’s 'new attack plan claim', terms it irresponsible

The statement comes after Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi claimed on Sunday that he has "reliable intelligence that India is planning a new attack on Pakistan", which may take place between 16 and 20 April.

"This public gimmick appears to be a call to Pakistan-based terrorists to undertake a terror attack in India".

On Thursday, India said Pakistan is yet to respond to its concerns over reports that controversial elements have been appointed to the committee.

An Indian jet was brought down during the fight and its pilot captured when he ejected on the Pakistani side of the border.

"Continuing with Pakistan's spirit of constructive engagement, we have agreed to the Indian proposal for a technical meeting on 16 April", Foreign Office spokesperson Dr Mohammad Faisal tweeted. Mr Khan contested this on Saturday, citing USA defence officials saying Pakistan was not missing any of the US-made planes from their fleet and accused India's ruling Bharatiya Janata Party of using the conflict to win elections.

According to Mr Qureshi, the official announcement was made with the assent of Pakistani Prime Minister Imran Khan.

"Pakistan has apprised all five permanent member states of the United Nations Security Council [China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States] of India's attempts to disrupt peace", Qureshi was quoted by the Foreign Office.

Pakistan has also summoned India's deputy high commissioner to protest against what it says are India's plans.

Satellite images showing little sign of damage have also case doubt on the success of Indian air strikes on a camp of the Jaish-e-Mohammed militant group in northwestern Pakistan.

Pakistan closed its airspace during the standoff but most air traffic has since resumed and the country's biggest airports have reopened.

As strains between the two neighbours apparently eased, Pakistan said on Friday it would release 360 Indian prisoners this month.

Pakistan said Monday that it will hold a technical meeting with India on April 16 to discuss the modalities for the corridor linking Gurudwara Darbar Sahib in Kartarpur to Dera Baba Nanak shrine in Gurdaspur district in Punjab.

Pakistani authorities have handed over 100 detained Indian fishermen to their country's officials at the Wahga border crossing.
