Srinagar: In what may be Pakistan’s strongest warning to the United States yet, its Army has warned that it would not allow ‘unilateral action’ on its soil – even if it is undertaken by friends.
Pakistani Army though remains determined to protect its territorial integrity. “The armed forces are working with friends and want to continue doing so, but there can be no compromise on our national honour. We do not want a conflict with our friends, but will ensure the security of Pakistan,” reports quoting Pakistani Army spokesperson Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor said.
His statement comes on the backdrop of repeated warnings from the US. CIA Director Mike Pompeo earlier this month had said his country would ensure the elimination of “terrorist safe havens” in Pakistan.
