Washington: Pakistan recently accused India of violating its airspace rules. It was claimed that the object which came from India within 262 km in Pakistan fell in the Mian Channu area of Khanewal district. India had clarified that it was an incident due to a technical fault. Now America has also come on India’s side. The US said that it was just an accidental incident; it was not a deliberate attack. The US has said that there is no other reason than the accidental launch of the missile.
The Indian government on Friday said that two days ago, a missile accidentally fired, which landed in Pakistan and the “extremely regrettable” incident was due to a technical fault during routine maintenance.
State Department spokesman Ned Price said in a daily press conference on Monday, “As you have heard from our Indian colleagues that this incident was nothing but a mistake, we also have to be behind it.” No other reason can be seen.
Price said in response to a question, ‘You should ask any other question in this regard to the Indian Defense Ministry. He had issued a statement on March 9 clarifying what had actually happened that day. We cannot comment other than that.
Pakistan’s army had claimed that this missile had taken off from Sirsa in India and after some time the missile changed its direction and turned towards Pakistan.
This missile fell in the Mian Channu area of Pakistan. However, it was not clear from both India and Pakistan which missile violated Pakistan’s airspace. Pakistan had asked India to tell which missile it had fired. It was also said from Pakistan that the Pakistani Air Force was monitoring the object coming from the Indian side. India called it an accident due to a technical fault.
