Pakistan foreign minister threatens India of nuclear attack, slams Army Chief Rawat

Pakistan Foreign Minister Khawaja Muhammad Asif

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif on Saturday termed the Indian army chief's statement as tantamount to an invitation for a nuclear war.

Asked what Pakistan's response would be if India resorted to any such misadventure, Maj Gen Ghafoor said: "Should they [India] wish to test our resolve they may try and see it for themselves". If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons.

He added that Pakistan had credible nuclear capability, exclusively meant for the "threat from the east", referring to the eastern border it shares with India.

"Such irresponsible statements from a from a person of a responsible stature are deplorable".

Apart from Pakistan, five other teams are participating in the tournament, namely Egypt, India, Nigeria, Morocco and United States, it added.

Foreign Minister Khawaja Asif warned that Indian army chief's statement amounted to invitation for nuclear encounter. "The general's doubt would swiftly be removed, inshallah [God willing]", Asif vowed.

Routes in and out of Santa Barbara have been shut down from the south, and various roadways have been swallowed by the floods. Trashed areas were awash in a sea of mud, with only the tallest trees standing and some homes buried up to their roofs.

Pakistani officials maintain that the nation's short-range battlefield NASR (Hatf-IX) nuclear-capable missile would deter the bigger neighbor from imposing a sudden, limited assault with conventional forces under New Delhi's "Cold Start" doctrine. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons.

Cautioning India to refrain from any misadventure, Foreign Office Spokesman Dr Mohammad Faisal said the style of threatening represented India's sinister mindset.

"Pakistan has demonstrated deterrence capability".

"We believe COAS is a very responsible appointment and four-star is a rank with age-long experience and maturity", the Geo TV quoted Ghafoor as saying.

"But we believe it's a weapon of deterrence not a choice". The tweet is a response to Army Chief General Bipin Rawat's comment on Pakistan's "nuclear bluff". "They must not remain in illusion", he warned.
