ISLAMABAD: Foreign Office Spokesperson Dr Muhammad Faisal on Thursday said India’s confrontational attitude and huge arms build up is a threat to regional peace and stability and may lead to strategic miscalculation.
“Indian falsified claims and belligerent statements are motivated by an exaggerated view of its capabilities and hegemonic designs,” he said at his weekly news briefing in Islamabad.
The spokesperson said the Indian army chief’s provocative and irresponsible statements reflect the jingoistic mindset of India which could further exacerbate the already volatile strategic environment.
He clarified that Pakistan was not desirous of escalation and had reacted with restraint but Indian mistaken belief and irresponsible rhetoric was fraught with unforeseen danger.
Dr Faisal added that Pakistan was fully capable of giving a befitting response in case of any misadventure.
He said the ongoing spree of ceasefire violations along the Line of Control and Working boundary were aimed at diverting world attention from Indian forces` atrocities in Occupied Kashmir.
