Pak Foreign Minister Claims India Will Launch New Attack This Month

Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mehmood Qureshi said his government had reliable information that India was planning an act of aggression against them between April 16 and 20

"Pakistan has apprised all five permanent member states of the United Nations Security Council [China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States] of India's attempts to disrupt peace", he shared.

"India rejects the irresponsible and preposterous statement by the Foreign Minister of Pakistan with a clear objective of whipping up war hysteria in the region", Raveesh Kumar, the spokesperson of the Ministry of External Affairs, said in a statement.

"We have reliable intelligence that India is planning a new attack on Pakistan".

"A [fresh] act of aggression by India against Pakistan is likely between April 16 and 20".

The Indian government was quick to reject this claim, branding it "irresponsible and preposterous" and a call for action issued to terrorists, the Times of India wrote.

"I am saying it with responsibility and I have a responsible position, I know each word I say would make headlines in the global press", he said, stressing the reliability of his claim.

"A new mishap could be staged.And its goal will be to justify their [India's] offensive against Pakistan and to increase diplomatic pressure against Islamabad", he alleged.

Ties between India and Pakistan plunged after a suicide auto bombing by Pakistan-based terrorists in Jammu and Kashmir's Pulwama that killed 40 paramilitary soldiers on February 14.

Subsequently on Feb 26, Indian warplanes violated Pakistani airspace and allegedly struck what New Delhi claimed was a Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM) training camp - a claim never proved by India.

India said it, too, had shot down a Pakistani aircraft and the air force displayed pieces of a missile that it said had been fired by a Pakistani F-16 before it went down. "It is our policy to keep the nation informed", the minister added.

"We want the worldwide community to take notice of this irresponsible behaviour and reprimand them [India] for taking this route", he said. He said that global powers did not reprimand India despite blatant violation of worldwide laws on the part of India due to geopolitics.

India would not immediately respond to the allegations.

Pakistan would retaliate and give befitting response to any misadventure, the Indian envoy was told.

"BJP's attempt to win the elections through whipping up war hysteria and false claim of downing a Pak F-16 has backfired with USA defence officials also confirming that no F-16 was missing from Pakistan's fleet".

Later on Sunday, the Foreign Office summoned the Indian deputy high commissioner and handed him a demarche to convey Islamabad's objections.

Pakistan warned Sunday that rival India is planning to launch a fresh military assault against the country, calling for the worldwide community's urgent diplomatic intervention to deter New Delhi from endangering regional peace and stability.
