New Delhi: India informed the envoys of all major countries about its air strikes deep inside Pakistan, including the one on the Jaish-e-Muhammed’s biggest terror training camp in Balakot, on Tuesday, just a few hours after the strikes.
It is learned that envoys of Sri Lanka, Maldives, Afghanistan, Bhutan, Turkey and Indonesia, along with the envoys of the P-5 countries – United States, Russia, China, United Kingdom, and France – were briefed about the air strike, which was carried out deep inside Pakistan.
After meeting foreign secretary Vijay Gokhale, Hans Dannenberg Castellanos, the dean of Diplomatic Corps in India, said, “We are very happy that the Indian government has informed us in a quick and informed way about what happened. We are informing our capitals and our capitals will decide what opinion has to be formed.”
“The information is that they did not affect any civilian or any Pakistani military installation,” he added.
Gokhale, while briefing the media on the air strikes, said, that the “intelligence-led operation” on the Pakistan-based terror group’s biggest training camp in Balakot became “absolutely necessary” as it was “planning more suicide attacks in India”.
