Pak Army fully prepared to tackle Indian aggression: Sartaj Aziz

ISLAMABAD: Adviser to Prime Minister on National Security and Foreign Affairs, Sartaj Aziz said on Monday that Pakistan’s Army was fully prepared to deal with Indian aggression on Line of Control and Working Boundary.

During the meeting of Senate’s Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs held under Haji Adeel, Mr. Aziz said India has been trying to send a signal to Pakistan that ‘if you want talks and friendship, you should drop the issue of Kashmir’.

He said Pakistan is all set to take up with UN Human Rights Council the issue of unprovoked cross-border aggression by India and the resulting civilian casualties.

Earlier, Information Minister Senator Pervez Rashid said Jawaharlal Nehru – the first prime minister of India – had promised the right of self-determination to the people of Kashmir.

“Even today Pakistan’s demand is the same that Indian leaders should honour the promise their elders had made,” said Pervez Rashid while addressing the International Kashmir Conference.
