ISLAMABAD: Pakistan’s Defence Minister, Khurram Dastgir has cautioned India of a “response” in case of a “misadventure” by it. Dastgir made these remarks on Kashmir Solidarity Day meeting at the President House on Monday, hosted by The President of Pakistan, Mamnoon Hussain.
“They [India] may have the right to start an [unprovoked] misadventure but the right to respond, at what level and with what magnitude will be reserved by us,” The Express Tribune quoted Dastagir as saying.
He assured that Pakistan was committed to 2003 ceasefire accord with India but said it should not be interpreted as the weakness to react in case of war.
“Our commitment to abide by the ceasefire agreement is not a response limitation,” he said.
Dastgir said that the Indian forces were carrying heinous crimes in Kashmir, adding that it makes it necessary for him to demand that there must be an international inquiry to check the exact number of the crimes carried out by the Indian forces in Kashmir.
