Brig. Retd. Haris Nawaz (Defence Analyst):
A hotline between DGMO’s has been established to make contact in times of emergency. Pakistan has made serious protest on recent LoC violation by Indian forces. Pakistan does not want bilateral tensions to escalate. Pakistan wants that bilateral issues should not affect movement in Kashmir. Our armed forces have always given matching response to Indian aggression. India does not differentiate between armed forces and civilians. Pakistan should tell regional countries that Kashmir is a nuclear flash point and it can impact the entire region. Pakistan has always urged for composite dialogue with India.

Mian Abdul Manan (Leader, PML-N):
The JIT report is nothing more than a fictitious and concocted imaginary story. It has produced false evidences against the elected Prime Minister of Pakistan. International forces want to stop Prime Minister from developmental projects in Pakistan. The Prime Minister wants to revolutionize Pakistan’s economy through CPEC. The people of Pakistan do not like this entire process of accountability. They love and support developmental projects like CPEC, motorways and energy projects in Pakistan.
