Bajwa said the country’s armed forces are fully prepared to respond any aggression however, he also said that war was not in anybody’s interest.

He once again rejected as “false” and “concocted” the Indian claim of surgical strikes within Pakistani territory following the Uri terror attack that killed 19 Indian soldiers last month.
