“Pakistan to be defended like Feb 2019 adventure”, FO rejects Indian Minister’s threat

Foreign Office Sunday rejected the Indian Defense Minister's threat and said Pakistan would defend itself like the Feb 2019 incident as it has full capability of defence.

According to the 24News HD TV channel, the Pakistani foreign office (FO) spokesman termed the statement of the Indian Defense Minister highly irresponsible and provocative.

The FO spokesman said that Pakistan strongly rejected the highly irresponsible, provocative and unwarranted remarks made by the Indian Defense Minister.

His baseless remarks on the one side are deceptive and on the other side reflected India's characteristic hostility towards its neighbours, the spokesman said adding that India's dirty campaign against Pakistan has been completely exposed and discredited.

The spokesman has said it is no more secret that Indian leaders are engaged in lies and fantasies while pointing fingers at neighbouring countries to divert the attention of the international community from the widespread violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in India's illegally occupied Jammu and Kashmir (IIOJK).

The FO spokesman said that Pakistan was fully capable of defending itself against any aggression and the whole world had already witnessed Pakistan's ability and determination to thwart the Indian adventure in February 2019.

Pakistan FO spokesman said it was an authentic fact that Indian occupying forces were committing serious human rights violations and heinous crimes against innocent Kashmiris in IIOJK including extrajudicial killings, killings in custody, torture, arbitrary detention, including innocent children.

The spokesman has also said that the dossier presented by Pakistan to the international community in September 2021 contains irrefutable evidence of serious and systematic human rights violations and crimes against humanity by the Indian forces at IIOJK.

The FO spokesman said the frustration of the Indian government was evident in the fact that despite its state terrorism in IIOJK, it had completely failed to mute the peaceful voices demanding Kashmiris' right to self-determination.

The spokesman also said Pakistan would continue to act responsibly and contribute to all efforts to promote peace, security and stability in the region and beyond.
