Pakistan army chief warns India of 'unbearable cost' if war erupts

Islamabad, Sept 7: Responding to a recent statement by Indian Army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag, Pakistan army chief General Raheel Sharif has warned India of "unbearable damage" if it tried to impose a war on his country.

"Let me reiterate that our armed forces stand fully capable to defeat all sorts of external aggression," said General Raheel Sharif while addressing a special event organised by army at its headquarters in Rawalpindi on Sunday to mark the 50 anniversary of the 1965 war with India.

"If the enemy ever resorts to any misadventure, regardless of its size and scale - short or long - it will have to pay an unbearable cost," he said.

Indian army chief Suhag last week said that Indian Army was prepared for "swift, short nature of future wars".

"Armed forces of Pakistan are fully capable of dealing with all types of internal and external threats, may it be conventional or sub-conventional; whether it is cold start or hot start. We are ready," said General Raheel.

This time the reference was towards India's cold start doctrine of war.

Terming Kashmir as "unfinished agenda of partition", he said that it should be resolved according to UN resolution which calls for plebiscite to decide its future.

He also warned that Kashmir cannot be out in the back-burner.
