Wont tolerate India’s intimidating tone: Khawaja Asif


ISLAMABAD: Defence Minister, Khawaja Asif Monday said Pakistan became part of a battle that was not its own and that mess created in the past is being cleared through military operation Zarb-e-Azb.


In a statement, Khawaja Asif said India wishes to suppress Pakistan to a certain level.

“We want cordial relations with New Delhi, but won’t tolerate its intimidating tone,” the Defence Minister stressed.

A few days back, Khawaja Asif came down hard on India, saying its intelligence agency RAW was created to destroy Pakistan and it cannot be taken as a light issue.

Asif went on to say that the interests of the Taliban and RAW are the same.

The Defence Minister further said that if India was actually sympathetic towards Pakistan with regards to the war on terror, it would refrain from creating tension on the border.

Today, Asif said the army has almost completed its operation in North Waziristan agency but added that presence of security forces will have to be maintained in the border region in the coming days to prevent regrouping of terrorists.

Asif added the violent mindset can only be countered and defeated through education.
