'Will retaliate if India attacks, further demands for evidence against Pak': Imran Khan on Pulwama


Islamabad, Feb 19: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on Tuesday said that India has blamed Pakistan without any proof and if India has any proof about any wrongdoing it should give it to Pakistan for action.

In a televised address, Imran said,"Pakistan offer full support for any investigation in Pulwama. I guarantee action on this. My statement is for the Indian government. You (Indian govt) have blamed the Pakistan government without any evidence.''

Imran Khan assures action if evidence found against Pakistan on Pulwama attack

''It is in our interest that nobody from our soil spreads violence. I want to tell Indian govt that we will take action if evidence is found against anyone from Pakistan,'' Imran said.

However, he warned that any adventurism on part of India to threaten sovereignty of Pakistan will be met with assured retaliation.

''If you (Indian govt) thinks you will attack us and we will not think of retaliating, we will retaliate. We all know starting a war is in the hands of humans, where it will lead us only God knows. This issue should be solved through dialogue,'' he said.

"What would Pakistan gain from this? This is new Pakistan and new thinking that doesn't support terrorism," he added.

Imran also said that he didn't respond to the Pulwama attack because of important visit of Saudi Arabia's crown price to Pakistan.

Pakistan has strongly rejected India's allegations and said that the JeM remains a proscribed entity in Pakistan since 2002 and the country was implementing its obligations on sanctions implementation.

On February 14, at least 41 Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel were killed in Kashmir's Pulwama district in a suicide attack claimed by Pakistan-based Jaish-e-Mohammad terror group.
