ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Army in reaction to the provocative statement issued by the India COAS General Bipin Rawa said that the country is a nuclear power and is ready for war.
Indian Army Chief General Rawat threatened Pakistan with surprise action by Indian security forces, a day after New Delhi canceled a meeting between foreign ministers of the two countries.
General Rawat said Indian forces will take further measures. There is always a surprise in Indian forces’ action, General Rawat said at the media briefing.
“We are always ready and prepared for war. War happens when either side is unprepared for it,” DG ISPR Major General Asif Ghafoor said on Saturday.
The army’s media wing spokesperson said that the country’s desire for peace shouldn’t be perceived as its weakness, adding that the Army won’t let peace be derailed.
The ISPR spokesperson called General Rawat’s statement, ‘irresponsible’.
