ISLAMABAD: Minister for defence engineer Khurram Dastgir khan said on Tuesday Pakistan will pay India in its own coin in case of any Indian misadventure.

In a press statement to answer allegations of Indian Defence Minister, he said 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.

He further said they will defend robustly every inch of Pakistan’s soil.

He noted, “Instead of the knee-jerk reaction of blaming Pakistan without substantiation, India must answer for state-sponsored espionage against Pakistan. Living evidence in person of Kulbushan Yadev is in front of the world.”

The defence minister stated that India has failed to deliver justice to the 42 Pakistanis murdered in the Samjhota Express terrorism eleven years ago this week.

He added that India is destabilizing regional peace in word and deed; through irresponsible statements on nuclear deterrent and through its bloody, five-fold escalation in 2017 of attacks on unarmed civilians on the line-of-control and working boundary.

Khurram Dastagir said that Pak Armed Forces are alive to all possibilities, and prepared fully to defend our country's territorial integrity.

Backed fully by the Pakistani people, our forces are vigilant on land, sea, and air, he added saying that an aggressive Pak centric doctrine and arrayed forces under a belligerent regime leading to possible strategic miscalculation by India will seriously impact the strategic stability in South Asia.
