The Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) has refuted news that Skardu Air base is being used by China.
In a statement issued on Thursday, the ISPR said that news circulating on Indian electronic and social media claiming additional deployment of Pakistan army troops along Line of Control in Gilgit Baltistan is 'false, irresponsible and far from truth'.
The army's media wing further stated that there is no such movement or induction of additional forces. "We also vehemently deny presence of Chinese troops in Pakistan," the statement added.
On Wednesday Indian media reports claimed that almost 20,000 additional Pakistani soldiers were deployed to LoC in northern Ladakh to match Chinese deployments on the LAC in the east.
