Day after Pakistan received some solace and assurance from Saudi leadership, the country’s Prime Minister Imran Khan has threatened India of retaliation if India strikes.
The tension between the two countries are on the rise in wake of deadly Pulwama terror attack in which 40 soldiers were killed by a suicide bomber.
Denying that Pakistan had any role to play in the tragedy, PM Khan said that all this attack Pakistan talk is all keeping elections in mind.
He then went on to add that if at all these are serious, please make note of one thing clearly – Pakistan will not think of retaliating, it will retaliate.
This is Imran Khan’s first statement on the Pulwama attack, the worst-ever terror strike on security forces in Jammu and Kashmir.
Pakistan-based terror group Jaish-e-Mohammad was behind the attack and a 19-year-old school dropout who joined the outfit last year was the bomber who targeted a convoy of the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) on February 14.
