Pakistan fully capable to respond any aggression: Jilani


WASHINGTON: Pakistan’s Ambassador to the United States Jalil Abbas Jilani has said Pakistan has the capability to fully respond to any aggression against its soil.


In an interview with Voice of America, he rejected the claim of surgical strikes by India. He said India is calling the incident of firing on Line of Control (LoC) as surgical strikes in order to satisfy its people.

The envoy said we are in constant touch with the White House and US administration regarding the current situation. He said Pakistan reserves the right to defend itself. Jalil Abbas Jilani said over 4000 terrorists have been killed in Operation Zarb-e-Azb in which all terrorist groups including Haqqani network were targeted without any discrimination.

He said Pakistan is also fighting a battle against the proxies of cold war.

Pakistan’s Ambassador to the US said India has violated the charter of SAARC by refusing to attend the meeting in Islamabad.
