Pakistan PM warns of consequences of the nuclear war
ISLAMABAD - Prime Minister Imran Khan has warned the global powers and the international community of grave consequences if a nuclear war breaks out between arch-rivals Pakistan and India.
In an interview with Al Jazeera, he said, “It is a nation that will fight till the last breath,” he said while referring to a possibility of using nuclear arms in the war.
“The aftermath of a nuclear conflict is unimaginable and anything is possible if two nuclear-armed states enter into war against each other,” he said.
“No sane person can talk of a nuclear war. Pakistan will go to every extent for [rights] of Kashmiris.”
He affirmed that this was the reason Pakistan has been approaching every international forum for resolution of the longstanding dispute as the possible devastation would affect the entire subcontinent.
“Pakistan doesn’t want to initiate a war as wars create more problems. I am against war as I believe that wars don’t solve problems,” he added.
