ISLAMABAD (92 News) – Pakistan has rejected the Indian claims regarding the reports about inspection and seizure by the Indian authorities of an item from a Pakistan-bound commercial vessel by the Indian authorities. During a briefing, Foreign Office Spokesperson Aisha Farooqui said that the item under question is a heat treatment furnace casing system which has several industrial applications. “It is not listed in any international export control list. Contrary to what is being claimed, the item was correctly declared in the relevant documentation and there was no attempt to hide or conceal any information,” she declared. She said that they have also been approached by the private company in Pakistan which had imported the item under question. “Claims regarding the possible military dimension of the held item are factually incorrect. Similar furnaces are being used in several industries in Pakistan and the world over,” he said.
