Islamabad, Dec 29: Last week, Pakistan Army Chief Gen Ashfaq Parvez Kayani's had made a statement that Pakistan was ready to retaliate within miniutes if India declared a war against Pakistan. But Pakistan seems to be on a flip flop spree. Kayani on Monday, Dec 29 stated that Pakistan should 'avoid conflict' with India that began days after the Mumbai terror strikes. Moreover, Kayani made the statement days after Pakistani troops were moved towards the border.
Thousands of Pakistani troops were moved towards the Indian border, though no signs of war prevailed.
"Kayani highlighted the need to de-escalate and avoid conflict in the interest of peace and security,'' a brief army statement said.
"Kayani made the statement in talks with Chinese Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei, who is visiting Pakistan," the release said.
