Soldier martyred in Pakistan firing on LoC in J&K's Rajouri

Asif Ghafoor said conventional war between Pakistan and India was not possible and that was the reason that Pakistan was target of India on different fronts. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons. Amounts to invitation for nuclear encounter. If that is what they desire, they are welcome to test our resolve. "The general's doubt would swiftly be removed, inshallah", Asif tweeted.

Apart from Pakistan, five other teams are participating in the tournament, namely Egypt, India, Nigeria, Morocco and USA, it added.

When asked about New Delhi's role in destabilising Pakistan via state-sponsored terrorism, he said that if India could overpower Pakistan through conventional engagement post-overt nuclearisation, it could have done that by now. If we will have to really confront the Pakistanis, and a task is given to us, we are not going to say we can not cross the border because they have nuclear weapons.

Asif overtly stated that Pakistan has maintained nuclear arsenal to deal with threats emanating from its eastern border.

Speaking to state TV's world service, the DG ISPR responded to the Indian army chief's assertion saying that such statements are unbecoming from a person of a responsible stature.

The ISPR chief said Pakistan considers its nuclear capability to be a "weapon of deterrence" and not an option for war, according to a statement issued by the military's media wing. There must not be any misadventure based on miscalculation.

"Pakistan is fully capable of defending itself", he said.
