Do not mistake our desire for peace as weakness, Pak tells India


Do not mistake our desire for peace for weakness, the Pakistan army has told India. There is no space for any war with India, but our desire for peace should not be mistaken for weakness, Maj Gen Asif Ghafoor, the Director General of Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR) - the media wing of the army said. He also accused India of carrying out

1,077 ceasefire violations since the start of 2018 to date.

Do not mistake our desire for peace as weakness, Pak tells India

"Our defence, our desire for peace, should not be mistaken for weakness," Ghafoor said.

He said Pakistan had not responded to Indian firing, which followed an agreement by the two countries' militaries last week to adhere to the 2003 ceasefire agreement, but was "compelled" to respond only when civilians were targeted, Dawn reported.

Local administration officials said an elderly woman and a minor girl were killed and 24 others, including four children and eight women, injured in mortar shelling by the Indian forces on villages along the Working Boundary yesterday.

Ghafoor said Pakistan wants to respect the truce agreement.

"The Indians have to realise and understand where they want to go (in the future)," he said. "We are two nuclear powers, and there is no space for war," he added.
