Indian disinformation efforts aimed at maligning Pakistan: Asim Iftikhar

Islamabad, February 01 (KMS): The Foreign Office Spokesperson on Tuesday said India was using fake news to run a ‘wider disinformation campaign’ against Pakistan, including over the appointment of Sardar Masood as envoy to the US.

The Foreign Office Spokesperson Asim Iftikhar said this while responding to the queries of media persons regarding the reports carried by Indian media on Pakistan’s decision to appoint Sardar Masood Khan as Ambassador to the US.

He said this is a part of the wider Indian disinformation campaign to malign Pakistan and those who represent Pakistan by using fake news to make scandalous claims and baseless allegations.

The spokesperson said Ambassador Masood Khan is a highly accomplished diplomat with forty years of experience in both multilateral and bilateral diplomacy.
