“There is no space for war between Pakistan and India as both are nuclear powers” said the spokesman of Pakistan Army on Monday.
Interacting with media, Major General Asif Ghafoor, Director General of the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) said that Pakistan desires peace and is committed to defending every inch of the country. “Pakistan wants to respect the existing truce agreement with India” he added.
“We are willing to ignore the first shot that is fired from the Indian side, provided it does not result in a casualty on our side. However, the second shot would be responded in kind” he said.
“The Indians have to realise and understand where they want to go in the future. We are two nuclear powers and there is no space for war. Pakistan’s desire for peace should not be construed as a weakness” Major General Ghafoor added.
“We request the Indian Army and media to defuse tense situation. Recently, I had interaction with SAARC journalists, including Indians. We took them to North Waziristan. They asked a question that a high-profile incident happens in India whenever ties are improved between Pakistan and India. I told them you have witnessed only two incidents such as Mumbai attacks while Pakistan has faced thousands of such incidents” he said.
