Pakistan Army Chief, General Raheel Sharif, has said that his army would reply to India’s ‘aggression with full force.’
Addressing a special programme commemorating the war of 1965, Gen Sharif said, “Pakistani army is capable of responding to any foreign aggression. The enemy will have to bear unbearable costs if it showed any kind of aggression. We are ready for both conventional and unconventional war.”
He said that ‘history is a witness that Pakistan has always given befitting reply to forces that tried to endanger the integrity of our country.’
He said that Kashmiri people had been ‘victims of aggression and atrocities’ adding that the time was ripe for Kashmir issues to be resolved in light of the ‘United Nations resolutions.’
He said, ” Kashmir is an unfinished agenda of the sub-continent’s division and the peace in the region is impossible without solving this issue first.”
General Sharif’s warning comes days after the Indian army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag had told his troops to be ready for short-scale wars.
General Suhag had said that the recent incidents of ‘terrorist violence’ in the valley was indicative of the fact that the violence could spread in other areas too.
