Offering full support for any investigation in Pulwama attack, Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan today said that India has blamed Pakistan without any proof and if India has any proof about any wrongdoing it should give it to Pakistan for action.
“Pakistan offers full support for any investigation in Pulwama. I guarantee action on this,” Prime Minister Imran Khan said in an address on Radio Pakistan.
“It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian government that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,” Imran said.
However, he warned that any adventurism on part of India to threaten sovereignty of Pakistan will be met with assured retaliation. “I know it’s a poll season in India. If you thinks you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating, we will retaliate.It is easy to start a a war but difficult to end it. This issue should be solved through dialogue,” he said.
“India has blamed Pakistan without any proof. Pakistan has nothing to gain from this attack. Pakistan is moving towards peace and stability,” .”What would Pakistan gain from this? This is new Pakistan and new thinking that doesn’t support terrorism,” he added.
He also said that he didn’t respond to the Pulwama attack because of important visit of Saudi Arabia’s crown price to Pakistan.
Yesterday, Pakistan had sought the UN’s urgent intervention to “defuse tensions” with India.
Pakistan has strongly rejected India’s allegations and said that the JeM remains a proscribed entity in Pakistan since 2002 and the country was implementing its obligations on sanctions implementation.
On February 14, at least 41 Central Reserve Police Force personnel were killed in Kashmir’s Pulwama district in a suicide attack claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group.
The attack has heightened bilateral tensions with both New Delhi and Islamabad calling back their envoys.
In a tit-for-tat action, Pakistan Monday called back its High Commissioner from India for “consultations” amid heightened bilateral tensions after the Pulwama terror attack, days after New Delhi asked its envoy in Islamabad to return.
Pakistan nationals in a Rajasthani city in India have been asked to leave within 48 hours, as tensions sour between the two countries in the aftermath of last week’s attack in Pulwama.
