New Delhi: A day after Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman’s ultimatum, Pakistan Defence Minister Khurram Dastgir Khan, on Tuesday warned that ‘any Indian aggression will be met with an equal and proportionate response’.
“Any Indian aggression, strategic miscalculation or misadventure regardless of its scale, mode, or location will not go unpunished and shall be met with an equal and proportionate response. We will defend robustly every inch of Pakistan’s soil,” Pakistan Defence Minister said.
Vowing to “robustly defend” every inch of Pakistan’s soil, he said that Pakistan will pay New Delhi in “its own coin in case of any Indian misadventure”.
He also said Pakistan’s armed forces are “alive to all possibilities, and prepared fully to defend our country’s territorial integrity”.
“An aggressive Pakistan centric doctrine and arrayed forces under a belligerent regime leading to a possible strategic miscalculation by India will seriously impact the strategic stability in South Asia,” he warned.
Earlier on Monday, addressing a press briefing regarding the Sunjuwan base attack, the Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman repeatedly said: “Pakistan will have to pay for the misadventure.”
