India alleges Pakistani National Security Adviser deliberately projected fictitious map
India has said the Pakistani NSA deliberately projected a fictitious map that Pakistan has recently been propagating at the meeting of the National Security Advisers of member states of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO).
In response to questions on Tuesday’s meeting of NSAs of SCO member states, External Affairs Ministry spokesperson Anurag Srivastava said this was in blatant disregard to the advisory by the host Russia against it and in violation of the norms of the meeting.
He said, the Indian side left the meeting in protest at that juncture after consultation with the host.
Mr Srivastava said, as was to be expected, Pakistan then went on to present a misleading view of this meeting.
Government sources said, that Pakistan’s use of a fictitious map as a backdrop for its representative depicting sovereign Indian territories as part of Pakistan is a blatant violation of the SCO Charter and against all its established norms of safeguarding the sovereignty and territorial integrity of SCO Member States.
