Tasnim Aslam also said that statement of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi alleging Pakistan for proxy war is unfortunate.

FO spokesperson said that Pakistan has lost 55 thousands lives in the war against terrorism and five thousand security personals sacrificed their lives.
She added, “The entire world has time and again acknowledged the unprecedented sacrifices rendered by our valiant armed forces with over 5,000 soldiers having embraced martyrdom.”
