Pakistan on Friday claimed that Indian Air Force aircraft had violated its airspace 20 times this year and 182 times since November 2007.

The Foreign Office spokesman made the claim in response to a statement by the Indian Defence Minister regarding violations of Indian airspace by Pakistani aircraft.

The spokesman described the Indian Defence Minister's contention as "baseless".

The spokesman said, "We have consistently brought these incidents to the notice of the Indian government through diplomatic channels, reiterating deep concern over the escalating rate of violations of the airspace."
