ISLAMABAD - Taking a strong exception to the so-called 'surgical' strike at Balakot, Pakistan is planning to lodge a complaint against India at the United Nations for 'eco-terrorism'.

Climate Change Minister Malik Amin Aslam said Indian aircraft bombed a forest reserve and the government was undertaking an environmental impact assessment (EIA) on the basis of which a complaint would be lodged with the United Nations and other forums.

"What happened over there is environmental terrorism. Dozens of pine trees had been felled. There has been serious environmental damage," Aslam told Reuters.

In a tweet, the minister highlighted that Pakistan values its nature.

In its relentless aggression and warmongering, Indian aircraft dropped payload over Balakot area in Pakistan damaging pine trees and bringing chaos in South-Asia though it tried to fool the public by saying that it was a surgical strike.

India and Pakistan are at daggers drawn over the Pulwama attack in Indian occupied Kashmir for which New Delhi pinned blame on Islamabad without any evidence.
