“FS today briefed P5 Ambassadors at MoFA. Rejected Indian allegations on Pulwama attack,” wrote Pakistan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Spokesperson Mohammad Faisal  on Twitter.

P-5 refers to US, Russia, China, France and UK — which are permanent members of the UN Security Council.

In the meeting with P-5 envoys, Janjua has “noted a familiar Indian pattern of immediate and reflexive assignment of blame on Pakistan without investigations”.

According to report the meeting came hours after India’s Foreign Secretary Vijay Gokhale on Friday met at least two dozen envoys in Delhi, including those from the P-5 nations.

The report quoted Pakistan Foreign Secretary as having said in the meeting that her country has pursued a constructive approach towards India, and Pakistan’s offer of dialogue and “the Kartarpur initiative is clear evidence of this”.

Citing Janjua, Faisal wrote on Twitter that “ratcheting up tensions in the region will be counterproductive”.

On Thursday 49 CRPF men were killed and several others were injured in suicide bomb attack along Srinagar Jammu highway at Lethpora area of Pulwama district.
