  • Pakistan Says India Planning Another Military Attack

Addressing a news conference in Multan, Qureshi said there is "reliable intelligence that India is readying for another act of aggression" against Pakistan.

India on Sunday rejected as "irresponsible and preposterous" Pakistan's statement that New Delhi will attack it again and accused Islamabad of trying to whip up war hysteria in the region. "This public gimmick appears to be a call to Pakistan-based terrorists to undertake a terror attack in India", Kumar said.

Last week, the Indian government faced embarrassment when a Foreign Policy magazine report citing senior U.S. defence officials stated that none of Pakistan's F-16 jets had been shot down by the Indian Air Force ─ contrary to India's claims ─ on Fen 27, when tensions between both countries had spiked in the aftermath of the Pulwama attack.

In a strongly worded statement, External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said the comments by the Pakistani foreign minister is aimed at whipping up war hysteria in the region.

"Preparations are being made, and there are chances of another attack against Pakistan".

"I am speaking responsibly, I hold a position of responsibility, and I know the words I utter will be picked up by the worldwide media", he prefaced.

A suicide auto bombing by Pakistan-based militants in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed at least 40 Indian paramilitary police on February 14. "And its objective will be to justify their [India's] offensive against Pakistan and to increase diplomatic pressure against Islamabad". Two weeks later, India carried out an air strike on a training base in Pakistan of the Jaish-e-Mohammed, which had claimed responsibility for the attack.

The fishermen form the first batch of 360 Indian prisoners Pakistan has announced to set free in four phases this month.

The minister said Pakistan had already briefed the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council on the issue and stated Islamabad's apprehensions.

Pakistani officials refuted Indian claims of hitting any "camps" or "killing a large number of militants" in the Balakot district before undertaking its own retaliatory military action the following day. The Indian government has not yet responded.

But global diplomacy and Pakistan's decision to release the pilot to India two days later effectively defused the threat.

Qureshi also criticised the global community for remaining silent over Indian aggression against Pakistan on February 26.

According to details, the FO warned the rival India against any misadventure.

Later on Sunday, the Foreign Office summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner and handed him a demarche to convey Islamabad's objections.
