Surgical strikes will be treated as war and will be repulsed: PakistanDecember 25th, 2008 - 12:31 pm ICT by ANI
Islamabad, Dec. 25 (ANI): The Pakistan Senate has warned India that any surgical strike into its territory would be taken as an act of war and would be repulsed with “full force”.
Any violation of Pakistani territory would be considered as war and would be repulsed with full force, Leader of the House Raza Rabbani was quoted by the Daily Times, as saying.
He dismissed reports of Pakistan being asked by the US Chiefs of Staff, Chairman Michael Mullen, to not retaliate in case of an Indian strike.
We were neither conveyed such a message by Mullen nor are we ready to accept such advice, Rabbani said.
He also rejected reports of disparity between the military and civilian leadership in Pakistan.
Rabbani offered India co-operation in the Mumbai probe, but said Pakistani citizens would not be handed over to India. (ANI)
