Islamabad, Aug 5: In its latest offensive to India, Pakistan on Sunday warned its neighbouring country that it will effectively respond to any type of aggression or provocation from India, with its people's support. Addressing the media after the National Security Council's (NSC) meeting, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan said they have evolved a strategy to effectively respond to any provocation from India. The meeting was attended by Defence Minister Pervez Khattak, Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi, Army Chief General Qamar Javed Bajwa, the Navy Chief and Air Force Chief.
The civil and military leadership reviewed the situation after tensions escalated at LoC on Saturday night, the Dispatch News Desk (DND) news agency reported. The Indian Army on Saturday said that it has foiled an attack by Pak BAT on a forward post along the LoC in Keran sector of Jammu and Kashmir, killing five to seven intruders. Earlier the Pakistan premier accused India of using cluster bombs in violation of the 1983 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons and asked the UN Security Council take note of this.
"I condemn India's attack across LOC on innocent civilians & its use of cluster munitions in violation of international humanitarian law and its own commitments under the 1983 Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. UNSC must take note of this international threat to peace & security," he said in a tweet. (UNI)
