Indian Aggression along LoC- “Pakistan will continue to respond effectively and leave no stone unturned to defend the motherland”: COAS
General Raheel Sharif attended funeral prayer of the soldiers in Jehlum, who embraced martyrdom in Indian cross border firing at Line of Control today.
PM and President expressed profound grief and sorrow over the loss of precious human lives in the latest violation of Line of Control by the Indian forces. The President said that the objective of the unprovoked firing on LoC is to divert the attention of the world from the Kashmir issue where innocent Kashmiris being martyred daily but India will not succeed in its nefarious designs. The Prime Minister said that we are fully capable of defending our soil against any aggression.
Khawaja M. Asif urges the world community to take notice of Indian provocations against Pakistan as any escalation of tension between the two nuclear armed neighbors could prove catastrophic for the whole region. Adviser on Foreign Affairs Sartaj Aziz expressed the apprehension that the Indian actions may lead to strategic miscalculation. Marium Aurangzeb says entire Pakistani nation stands behind their valiant soldiers.
Foreign Secretary Aizaz Ahmad Chaudhry summoned Indian High Commissioner and deplored the increasing Indian ceasefire violations at the LoC and the Working Boundary, especially in the last two months. This belligerent attitude of Indian occupation forces was a serious threat to the regional peace and security and may lead to a strategic miscalculation. Pakistan is pursuing a policy of restraint, which should not be construed as a sign of weakness. The Armed Forces of Pakistan do not initiate fire, but will always respond in a befitting manner, if fired upon
