ISLAMABAD, Feb 13 (APP):Minister for Defence Engineer Khurram Dastgir Khan Tuesday said that Pakistan would pay India in its own coin in
case of any Indian misadventure.
“Any Indian aggression, strategic miscalculation, or misadventure regardless of its scale, mode, or location will
not go unpunished and shall be met with an equal and proportionate response. We
will defend robustly every inch of Pakistan’s soil,” the minister said in a
statement.
He said that instead of the knee-jerk reaction of blaming Pakistan without substantiation, India must answer for
state-sponsored espionage against Pakistan.
He said living evidence in person of Kulbushan Yadev was in front of the world.
He said India had failed to deliver justice to the 42 Pakistanis, who were murdered in the Samjhota Express
terrorism eleven years ago.
“India is destabilizing regional peace in word and deed; through irresponsible statements on nuclear deterrent and through its
bloody, five-fold escalation in 2017 of attacks on unarmed civilians on the line-of-control and working boundary,” he said.
He said Armed Forces of Pakistan were alive to all possibilities, and prepared fully to defend country’s territorial
integrity.
“Backed fully by the Pakistani people, our forces are vigilant on land, sea, and air.
“An aggressive Pakistan centric doctrine and arrayed forces under a belligerent regime leading to possible strategic
miscalculation by India will seriously impact the strategic stability in South Asia,” he added.
