Crisis may be easing, but threat of war remains, Said DG ISPR

ISLAMABAD: Director General Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) Major General Asif Ghafoor on Wednesday said that crisis between Pakistan and India may be easing but the threat of war is still there.


In an interview to CNN, the DG ISPR said that Pakistan only responded to the Indian aggression, adding that it depends on India what step it will take to reduce the tensions.

Kashmir dispute has to be resolved in order to maintain peace in the region, the DG asserted.


Major General Asif Ghafoor told that India is torturing the Kashmiri people with pallet guns and by breaching human rights.


Earlier, DG ISPR clarified that Pakistan armed forces are fully capable to respond to any sort of Indian aggression. Pakistan do not want to affect the peace of region, he stressed.


“Tensions remain heightened between India and Pakistan from 26-28 February. India violated our airspace on February 26. The Indian pilot was captured and later released,” said DG ISPR.


He told that Prime Minister Imran Khan offered probe into Pulwama attack but no contact could be made on hotline between Pakistan and India.


“A dossier has been received by India and investigation is underway over it. It is being reviewed by the relevant ministry. Action will be taken if anyone found responsible,” DG ISPR declared.


“All the political parties agreed over National Action Plan (NAP). The actions have not been taken under any pressure as NAP is being implemented since 2014 when there was neither FATF nor Pulwama incident,” he notified.


Decision to ban Jamaat-ud-Dawa and Falah-e-Insaniat was made in January, he said.
