ISLAMABAD: Foreign office spokesperson Dr Faisal Thursday said distortion of agreed security check of Indian spy family and portraying it as religious/cultural disrespect denotes only bad faith on behalf of India.

During his weekly media briefing in foreign office, Foreign office spokesperson Dr Faisal  said that Indian allegations against Pakistan coming 24 hours after the visit of Kabhushan Yadavs family are baseless, counterproductive and regrettable.

A comprehensive security check was essential on which both the countries had agreed, in advance, through diplomatic channels, he added.

Spokesperson reaffirmed that the purpose of the visit was to have a meeting on humanitarian grounds, of Commander Jadhav with his wife and mother, which was successfully achieved despite all impediments.

He said the humanitarian gesture by Pakistan does not obviate the fact reality that Commander Jadhav is a convicted Indian terrorist and spy responsible for multiple deaths and destruction in Pakistan.

Foreign office spokesperson  said that the visitors belongings were returned to them before they left except the shoe of Commander Jadhav’s wife was retained as it did not clear the security check.

Replying to a question he said that Indian media is controlling the politics of their country.

He added that we should focus on the bigger positive outcome and not get bogged down in details or distortion of facts.

Rejecting the propaganda against Pakistani products in Afghanistan, Foreign office spokesperson Dr Faisal said that Afghans are using Pakistani products for years and callous propaganda cannot dent the trust between the two countries.
