Islamabad: Foreign Office spokesperson on Wednesday dismissed Indian media reports about expulsion of Mr Idrees from India as factually incorrect. Commenting on the reports, the spokesperson said that Mr Idrees was an official of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. A few months ago, he was designated for appointment in the High Commission of Pakistan, New Delhi. However, due to inordinate delay in issuance of visa to him, he was being assigned to another Pakistani Mission abroad.

The spokesperson said that Pakistan was fully capable of defending its territorial integrity against any foreign aggression.
