ISLAMABAD: Pakistan Army chief Gen Qamar Bajwa, during a visit to the Line of Control (LoC) on Friday, warned India against aggression, saying any misadventure would receive resolute response from his troops, Dawn newspaper reported
The newspaper reported that Gen Bajwa visited the LOC to review the state of preparedness and morale of the troops, a day after the National Security Committee authorised the armed forces to respond to any Indian aggression with full force, adding, the top commander’s visit signalled the highest level of preparedness to the adversary.
Dawn reported that war hysteria in India in the aftermath of last week’s attack on Indian forces in Pulwama area has led to fears that India may undertake military action to deflect public attention from internal problems.
Speaking to the troops on the frontlines in Chirikot and Bagsar sectors, Gen Bajwa said: “Pakistan is a peace-loving country but we will not be intimidated or coerced. Any aggression or misadventure shall be paid back in same coin”.
