The Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan quashed all claims by India on Tuesday regarding the Pulwama attacks of February 14.
The Pakistan PM said, “You have blamed the Pakistan government without any evidence. If you have any evidence, we will act.”
Khan said, “This is a New Pakistan… We want stability. We do not benefit by attacking India.”
The former cricketer-turned-politician voiced, “It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian government we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan.”
Khan stressed, “If you think you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating, we will retaliate. We all know starting a war in the hands of humans, where it will lead us, only God knows. This issue should be resolved through dialogue.”
Earlier, India has announced to withdraw the Most Favoured Nation (MFN) status from Pakistan which will have downgrade impact on trade relations.
Indian FM Arun Jaitley has implied there is “incontrovertible evidence” against Pakistan in the killing of 44 CRPF jawans on the February 14 blast.
Also on February 17, the Pakistan envoy has returned to Islamabad for consultations regarding the Pulwama episode.
Similarly, India has also called back its high commissioner to Pakistan to New Delhi amid rising tensions.
