India planning another act of aggression against Pakistan, says Qureshi

After receiving credible intelligence reports that India was one again plotting military aggression against Pakistan, the Foreign Office (FO) on Sunday summoned Indian deputy High commissioner and warned that any misadventure would meet a befitting response.

"Preparations are being made, and there are chances of another attack against Pakistan".

MEA: "This public gimmick appears to be a call to Pakistan-based terrorists to undertake a terror attack in India. And its goal will be to justify their [India's] offensive against Pakistan and to increase diplomatic pressure against Islamabad".

Pakistan in its protest stated that it would retaliate against any aggression by Indian forces.

Foreign Minister Qureshi did not provide or elaborate upon the evidence Pakistan holds to make such claim and how he could be so specific about the timing, but said that they had "reliable intelligence" input with them.

Pakistan's Foreign Minister Shahe Mehmood Qureshi had earlier said that India is preparing for another attack against Pakistan, claiming that Islamabad has received credible information in this regard.

Tensions escalated sharply after India conducted airstrikes against a Jaish-e-Mohammad camp on February 26, days after the February 14 terrorist attack on CRPF personnel in Pulwama.

"If it happens, you can imagine the impact of the occurrence on the peace and stability of the region". The risk of conflict rose dramatically on February 27, when India launched an air strike on what it said was a militant training base inside Pakistan.

"India reserves the right to respond firmly and decisively to cross-border terrorist attack", the spokesman said, adding said it has been made clear to Pakistan that it can not absolve itself of responsibility of a cross border terrorist attack in India.

Indian Defence Ministry's spokesman Lt. Col. Devender Anand said in a statement: "Around 7.30 am, Pakistan initiated the attack violating the ceasefire agreement". "It is our policy to keep the nation informed", he added.

"The global community must take notice of India's irresponsible acts of aggression", he maintained, adding that Pakistan is once again offering dialogue to India for prosperity and stability between both countries.

"Pakistan will release 360 Indian prisoners, of which 355 are fishermen and five are civilians", Mr. Faisal said.

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.
