Pakistan FO strongly reacts over the irresponsible and provocative remarks by Indian Defence Minister
Pakistan says it is fully capable of defending itself against any aggression.
The Foreign Office Spokesperson while strongly condemning highly irresponsible, provocative and gratuitous remarks by the Indian Defence Minister threatening Pakistan, Asim Iftikhar said, the Indian Minister's unfounded remarks are delusional and reflective of India's characteristic hostility towards its neighbours.
He said that India’s smear campaign against Pakistan has been totally exposed and discredited.
He said the entire world is witnessing to Pakistan’s capability and resolve in thwarting the Indian misadventure in February 2019.
He said in doing so India wants to divert the attention of the international community from the widespread violations of human rights and international humanitarian law committed by the Indian occupation forces in the Indian Illegally Occupied Jammu and Kashmir.
He said Indian government’s frustration is evident from the fact that despite its unabated state-terrorism in IIOJK, it has utterly failed to silence the peaceful voices of Kashmiris demanding their right to self-determination promised to them by the United Nations Security Council in its various Resolutions.
Asim Iftikhar said while fully prepared to respond to India's provocations and irresponsible behaviour, Pakistan will continue to act responsibly and contribute to all efforts for promoting peace, security and stability in the region and beyond.
