No need to send supplies for Kashmir, you've already sent terrorism, infiltration, MEA tells Pakistan

Slamming Pakistan's proposal to send supplies to Jammu and Kashmir, India said on 14 August that India and others in the region have already received enough of "trademark exports" from Pakistan - including terrorism and infiltrators.

On 12 August, Pakistan's Foreign Ministry proposed to send supplies to Jammu and Kashmir.

The External Affairs Ministry "completely and categorically" rejected the communication from Pakistan.

"A communication was apparently delivered to our High Commission in Islamabad on August 12. I can only characterise its contents that propose sending supplies to the Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir as absurd," External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Vikas Swarup said.

"India and others in the region have already received enough of Pakistan's trademark exports -- international terrorism, cross-border infiltrators, weapons, narcotics and fake currency," he said.

India's reaction came on a day when Pakistani forces violated the ceasefire along the LoC in Poonch district of Jammu and Kashmir.

Earlier in the day, Pakistani High Commissioner to India Abdul Basit made provocative statements over Kashmir and said his country will continue to extend full diplomatic, political and moral support to the people of the state.

Basit made the comments during the country's Independence Day celebrations at its embassy in New Delhi.
