Days after India decided to call off talks between the foreign ministers of India and Pakistan in New York later this month, the two countries have started blaming each other. Upping the ante, the armies of the two countries have also jumped in the war of words.
While Indian Army chief General Bipin Rawat on Saturday welcomed India’s decision to call off talks and said that it’s time to “give it back” to Pakistan Army and terrorists, Pakistan Army has said that the nuclear-powered nation is “ready for war”.
Pakistan Director General of Inter Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor said, “We are always ready and prepared for war. War happens when either side is unprepared for it.”
DG Inter Services Public Relations Major General Asif Ghafoor says Pakistan is ready to respond to any external aggression.
Responding to a statement of Indian Army Chief, he said #Pakistan is a nuclear power and our desire for peace should not be misconstrued as our weakness.
He said Pakistan’s desire for peace “should not be misconstrued as its weakness”.
Pakistan’s Geo News, a news channel, quoted Major General Asif Ghafoor, who is also the spokesperson of Pakistan Army, saying that “the Indian government has failed to clamp down the political struggle of Kashmiris.”
He said Pakistan’s offer for dialogue is still on the table, “We know the cost of peace and we want to take it ahead,” he said.
