In a tweet, Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor said: “Statements of Indian military leadership against Pakistan are an irresponsible rhetoric with implications on regional peace and stability.”

He further quoted Chief of Army Staff General Bajwa as saying: “We shall continue to play our responsible and positive role for regional peace without compromising on national security and defend our motherland at whatever cost.”

Earlier, Indian Army Chief – General Manoj Mukund Naravane again threatened Pakistan and said that his troops are ready to capture Pakistan-Administered-Kashmir (PaK) if the India government gave such an order.

Recalling that a 1994 resolution of the Indian parliament had stated that the entire state of Jammu and Kashmir belonged to India, Gen Naravane said: “There is a parliamentary resolution that entire Jammu and Kashmir is part of India. If parliament wants that area (Pakistan-Administered-Kashmir) should be taken we will definitely do so and appropriate action will be taken accordingly.”

Asif Ghafoor had also responded to the Indian army chief’s aggressive statements, saying Gen Naravane “knows full well the situation in the region and the capability of the Pakistan Army. He was part of the Indian force on Feb 27 as well. So he’s not new.”

Ghafoor had earlier expressed the hope that Naravane “will no longer let go of reason”. “The Pakistan Army knows how to defend the country and India also knows this,” he had said at the time.
