“We have reliable information that India is planning a new attack on Pakistan,” Pakistan’s Foreign Minister Qureshi said in Multan on Sunday.
Pakistan accuses India of preparing an attack later this month. “We have reliable information that India is planning a new attack on Pakistan,” said Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi on Sunday. “According to our information, this could happen between the 16th and 20th of April.” He did not elaborate on the evidence he has and why he can pinpoint the timing. Prime Minister Imran Khan has agreed to publicize the information. Initially no comments were received from the Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
India flew attacks on Pakistani territory in Kashmir for the first time since the 1971 war. According to the New Delhi government, the attack by the Luftwaffe had been targeted at a training camp run by a group of Islamists named Jaish-e Muhammad, who claimed a 40-dead death in mid-February in India-controlled Kashmir. According to Pakistan, there are no such Islamist camps in the area.
The two nuclear powers claim Kashmir for themselves and have fought war against each other three times since their independence from Great Britain in 1947.
