Pakistan: Army and nation are ready for war, says Khan

Pakistan, Chachro
March 8, 2019 at 18:49 GMT +00:00 · Published

Pakistani Prime Minister said the country was ready for war and its army would respond if attacked by India or "any super power," during a speech in Chachro, in Tharparkar District on Friday.

"If someone, if it is India or any super power, wishes to enslave the Pakistani nation, I want to make it clear that my nation and I will fight until the last breath to save our independence," he said. "Keep in mind; you will receive befitting response from here."

Tensions between Pakistan and India, two nuclear-armed countries, have been rising in recent weeks, since a Pakistani based militant group killed dozens of Indian soldiers in a suicide bomb attack on February 14 in the Indian-controlled part of the disputed Kashmir region. India responded on February 26 by sending fighter jets into Pakistan for the first time since the 1970s.

India has long accused Pakistan of allowing militant groups to operate in their country. In his Friday speech, Khan said the country had a policy not to allow militias in the country, which his administration would implement, unlike previous administrations.

"Unfortunately, this policy was not implemented in the recent past but after we came to power, we decided to implement the National Action Plan," said Khan.
