Islamabad: Pakistan’s army chief General Raheel Sharif has warned India of “unbearable damage” if it tried to impose a short or long war on his country. 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 in his address at a special event organised by army at its Headquarters in Rawalpindi yesterday to mark the 50th anniversary of the 1965 war with India.
The remarks were a pointed response to a statement by Indian army chief General Dalbir Singh Suhag who said last week 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.
